I was considering a trip to Benghazi, but have decided it might be better to visit Cairo instead. Egypt is in many ways the center of the Arab world, and it has been for a long time, so what happens there will likely have a more profound effect on Arab history and the Middle East generally than anything that happens in Libya.
I’m making a list of things to cover while I’m over there, so let me ask you, dear readers of mine, what you’d like to read about. Perhaps there’s something crucial I have neglected to add to my list. Do you know someone there who might want to be interviewed? And maybe there’s something you’d like me to write about that other journalists are ignoring.
Please let me know what you think in the comments. Somebody is bound to have an idea that I haven’t considered.
Also, as usual, I don’t have a travel expense account, so please pitch in and help me cover the costs of this trip.
You can make a one-time donation through Pay Pal:
Alternatively, you can make recurring monthly donations. Please consider choosing this option and help me stabilize my expense account.
If you would like to donate yet don’t want to send money over the Internet, please consider sending a check or money order to:
