Today's New York Times contains only one Iraq article. It runs on A11. "Rape of Iraqi Girls and Killing of Family gets G.I. 110 Years" Paul von Zielbauer. Last week an AP article the Times ran did the apparently unthinkable, it named Abeer Qassim al-Janabi. PvZ becomes the first reporter for the paper to use Abeer's name in an article the paper has run. PvZ notes Steven D. Green will be the next tried (the article's on the conviction of Jesse Spielman) in a civilian court.

Isaiah will go up shortly (and if you went to Flickr this morning you saw it despite all the other computer problems -- Isaiah says thanks to Kendrick who caught Geronimo being mispelled when he saw it on Flickr).
