Lend a Hand

The indispensible Michael J. Totten is heading back to Iraq -- this time planning to tour Baghdad and al Anbar. And as he is a freelancer, a solo embed, it's not cheap.

The only problem with this is that it’s expensive – and dangerous. I need body armor, a helmet, and war zone insurance that costs 100 dollars per day.

So I need to ask for your help. There hasn’t been as much original material on the blog lately because I’ve needed to sell my skills and time to others to make ends meet. But I’m going to Baghdad, to the war, and I am going to blog it.

He needs a hand. He does good work. You have a few extra bucks this month. You know the drill.
