CNN is reporting that a powerful explosion his the Karada district in Baghdad this evening. Because I already received an email from one friend seeking to know that I am alright, I thought I would post this to let people know that I am fine. In fact, I am not sure that I even heard this blast. There was a loud boom a few minutes before I left the convention center, but in the interior of the building, I was not sure that it wasnt just construction noise.
Just wanted to drop a quick note and say thanks for your coverage. I refuse to watch CNN, BBC, etc because of the "negative only" reporting. While you may be slanting your report, I dont get the sense that you are. Thank you again for a fresh take on the Iraq situation, at least the small part of it you get to see.
