Thanksgiving in Baghdad

Jared Polis is continuing to blog his trip to Iraq.  His post – Arrival in Baghdad – was better than most stuff I see in TV (ok – I’m setting a low bar here.)  He also did a live Q&A on Colorado Confidential that included a flamer under the handle “IraqWarVeteran” (created on 11/21/07 – apparently just for the live blogging event.)

I’m proud of my friend Jared for making the trip and being open about his goals.  I personally have no interest in going to Baghdad so I’m happy to live vicariously through someone like Jared, especially when I get to reflect about it quietly on Thanksgiving morning.
