Two war notes from the blogosphere — one inspiring, one surreal:

1) My friend Chris Allbritton, who covers war news from an indie perspective at Back To Iraq, has raised almost $1,700 from readers — to help him fund another trip to Iraq. Go check his site out, and if you like what you see, drop him some change. He’ll go back to Iraq and write about what the situation on the ground is really like — from his own perspective, without any strings attached.

2) My friend Bret Dawson, who runs the superbly strange blog Hot Sandwich, has discovered a truly alarming “separated at birth” — related to the war on terrorism. Check out the photo of Al Qaeda operative Khalid Shaikh Mohammed above …. then go to this page here.
