Ali, a friend in Iraq, sent me this link to a post by Salam, "I Want Baghdad to Feel Like Home Again." It was originally written for his blog on The Guardian (UK), and re-posted today on Iraq Update. The important thing is that he arrived safely in Baghdad. Click title of this post.

I hope he gets his wish. However, Salam, remember to keep your head down!

Salam Pax Update January 2009

Salam spent last year finishing his studies for a MA in International Journalism at the City University of London, which he received at the end of the summer. He currently lists his home of record as Beirut, Lebanon. Here's a hint: If you are a member of Facebook, you might search for him, find him, and perhaps he will accept you as a friend.
