Write a comment Michael, you continue to captivate us with your magnificent reportage. We can't imagine here how difficult your task is, but nevertheless we support your efforts wholeheartedly. Where other journalists have taken a stab at the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, you are the only one who has penetrated to the heart of them and brought them back to us in vivid verbal and digital images. How do we thank you? Money is good, but it's not nearly enough. Stay safe, Sir, and thank you again.
