A feisty 64-year-old grandmother from Berkeley has succeeded in traveling to Iraq. Her ultimate goal: to get "embedded" as a journalist. Her quest has gotten a lot of press. It appears she is indeed in Baghdad and posting to her blog.
Her posts are so much fun, and the voice so believable, that my suspicions are aroused...I can't bring myself to believe it's real. I expect to hear any day now that it's a hoax.
