I wanted to correct an earlier post. A correspondent wrote to me and stated that Jonathan Paton is not, in fact, in the Green Zone, but a camp outside of Baghdad and isn’t, according to the correspondent, “even allowed to look in the direction of the Green Zone.”

I hope that no one thought I was implying that Paton was somehow in a “safe” part of Iraq. I’ve got enough friends that have been over there to know that there is no such thing.
