Spring Pix · Three pic­tures around Van­cou­ver; one of a fresh green spring­time tree, two of rot­ten old build­ings be­ing torn down ...
 
Totten’s Trip · Michael J. Tot­ten is a jour­nal­ist and blog­ger who’s back and forth to the Mid­dle East and writes about it, quite well in my opin­ion; he sup­ports this by free­lanc­ing and with his blog’s tip jar. He gets lots of link love from the right-wing bl­o­go­sphere, which is puz­zling be­cause Tot­ten is bal­anced and clear-eyed and doesn’t seem to have any par­tic­u­lar axe to grind. Re­cent­ly, he and a friend were hav­ing fun in Is­tan­bul and, on a ran­dom drive out in­to the coun­try, de­cid­ed on im­pulse to keep go­ing, all the way across Turkey and in­to Iraq; in­to the Kur­dish mini-state in Iraq’s north, to be pre­cise. It makes a heck of a sto­ry, with lots of pic­tures, in six part­s: I, II, III, IV, V, and VI.
