New Baghdad Journal

posted at 20:27 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

Steve Mumford is back from Iraq (thankfully) and has posted a new installment of his Baghdad Journal on

The new piece describes getting back to Iraq via Kuwait and introduces us to some of the interesting characters (journalists and bloggers) that he meets along the way. I couldn’t help but chuckle at the very black humor of Caleb Schaber:

[…] a very tattooed blogger, artist, musician and bartender who once ran for mayor of Seattle and writes for something called the Northern Nevada Newswire. He shows off his latest tattoo: a dotted line around his neck, with the inscription “cut here” (also in Arabic, helpfully, on the back) […]

I saw Steve a few weeks ago at Postmasters and he told me he had been embedded at the 86th Combat Support Hospital (AKA the Baghdad ER). I’m assuming in his future installments we’ll read and see more of that. permanent link to this post
