Change of Plans

The bad news is I’m delaying my trip to Iraq for two weeks. The good news is that by doing so I’ll be able to get much better interviews than if I were to go this week. (Thank God I didn’t actually pay for the plane ticket yet.)

I don’t want to jinx this by saying who one of my interviewees is. But let’s just say that I would be crazy not to rearrange my schedule right now.

So the trip will have to wait a while yet. But it will be worth it, both for me and for those who intend to read what I’ll have to say.
