The Jill Carroll Story

I'm going to interrupt the Fuji coverage for a great reading recommendation! Some of you may remember Jill Carroll, the young journalist who was kidnapped and held hostage by Iraqi insurgents for three months earlier this year. She's written up her story in a ten-part series that includes video clips and her answers to reader questions. It's a fascinating look not only at the extreme stresses of being held captive, but also at the Iraqi insurgencies. Not too many outsiders have seen this world from the inside and lived to tell about it. admit that it caused me to rethink some things. Click here to read her story. I recommend bookmarking it to come back to in the future unless you have a few hours to kill. :)

FYI- Jill Carroll is an Ann Arbor native, so they've been including the 10 part series in the Ann Arbor News. We don't get the newspaper currently, so we haven't read it yet.
