Totten's Travels

Michael Totten keeps getting better and better. I have just finished his lengthy post about his visit to Ramallah and it’s terrific, filled with sharp observations you don’t get int the mainstream media. And I know something about this since I’ve been to Ramallah several times myself, during different eras. Photos are good too. What’s particularly impressive is about what Michael is doing is that it is self-generated. He didn’t ask anyone’s permission to go to the Middle East and report. He just did it. So he’s beholding to no one but his readers. This is the blogosphere at its best. I wish there were more like him.
