Guess what: I figured out how to set up and work this blog format. It's too late now to start writing much but suffice it to say that there's a lot to catch up since I stopped reviewing articles. A major new development is of course Dr. Donny George's leaving Iraq. The reasons he gave had to do esp. with the Sadrist party taking over the ministry and the SBAH (pushing out professionals in favor of political appointees) and the ever-deteriorating security situation. Positive news was the return of the statue of Entemena. But more about all that later. Peace and justice, you all!
