The Accidental War Correspondent

I'm almost finished with my next dispatch from Iraq and should have it published later today. While I'm wrapping that up, take a look at food journalist Anthony Bourdain's hour-long TV episode from Beirut last year. Someone did us the favor of uploading it to You Tube. Bourdain went to Lebanon to film a show about restaurants, but he went in July and ended up as a war correspondent of sorts on accident until he was rescued by the Marines.

He did a better job covering Lebanon than many, if not most, foreign correspondents even though he's "only" a food journalist. Somebody should give him a prize.
