Here's a quick shot of the kitchen table this evening. Getting things organized, and putting the finishing touches on my plate carrier. A plate carrier is a vest that holds armor plates, and has lots of molle loops on the outside to rig gear (one of the big pains about body armor is that you loose access to all the pockets on your shirt). Mine currently has a satellite phone, a maglite, a leatherman, and a couple of pouches for extra camera batteries, memory cards, and video tape (photojournalist ammunition).

Chris Muir is the cartoonist that I met in Kuwait. He spent two weeks in Iraq at the same time I was there in February 2007, and so thought it would relevant to showcase his work on my site. Here is a link to Chris' humorous travelogue of this Iraq trip: http://billroggio.com/archives/2007/03/arrival_alignright_v.php
