Iraq: NY Times buys up Iraqi bloggers

After a hiatus of three months Zeyad of Healing Iraq is back. But only to give the news that he and four other Iraq bloggers are now writing for the NY Times. Unfortunately yours truly cannot tell you what is in there unless he pays out the $50 it costs to subscribe. Zeyad, Konfused Kid, Hassan, Aunt Najma and Truth teller you will be missed!
