JOINT BASE BALAD, Iraq – Reporting from Iraq can feel like one is in the golden age of newspapers. I have a TV in my room but am usually too busy to watch it. And I don’t have a consistent online hookup to check news Web sites. So I get my daily update provided by Stars and Stripes, the military newspaper.
It’s great. I’m usually one of the most plugged-in people I know; ask my wife to hear about my addiction to the BlackBerry and the constant updates of news it provides.
