Steven Vincent

Journalist Steven Vincent was murdered in Iraq, and his translator was seriously injured. I have read his work in the CS Monitor, but I had never stopped by his blog until I saw it linked in discusssions about his death. I have been wasting a lot of time this morning reading his posts. What excellent work--great writing that takes you into the heart of Iraqi society. And that's probably what got him killed.

So if you haven't ever stopped by In The Red Zone you should do so. I'm planning on buying the book with the same title as well. It's sad when tragedy exposes you to something new.

My thoughts are with Steven's family and with his translator.
