Here's the Mark Steyn piece everyone has already linked to, just in case you haven't read it yet. This is what happens when you turn Mark Steyn loose in Iraq and give him some BBC and NGO types to make fun of. One detail I don't like: he mentions that he was traveling with an illegally acquired firearm. That sounds like a goddamn stupid thing to do if you're a journalist, especially if the Third Infantry pulls you over at a roadblock and searches your ass. "Let's see, you're a Canadian named Steyn driving around Assboink, Iraq, who says he's a journalist but is packing an illegal gun. Welcome to Guantanamo."
