Question: I was wondering if you have any information on how Salam is doing. Have you received any emails from him lately?

Answer: Sadly, I haven't heard or seen anything from him since his last public post from March 24th. Though reports from Baghdad sound as if the entire city is still without phone or electricity service. It would be hard to imagine that the ISP that Salam was using is still able to operate under these conditions. It might be a while before we hear anything from him, even if he is unharmed. For a different perspective on the war, view 'embedded journalist' Stuart Hughes blog. Powerful stuff.
