It’s been a while since I lasted posted because I have been covering the war in Iraq. Internet access has been limited, and blogging will remain infrequent until I return to the United States. My stories on the war (and related issues) are posted on the “Magazine Articles” page of this site. The most recent story, in The New York Times Magazine, focuses on a bloody battle fought by a Marine battalion on the outskirts of Baghdad. I’ve also written about humanitarian aid during wartime, and I edited an essay about the death of a Marine in a Humvee accident.
