Yep, It's Much Safer

Shortly there won't be anybody but Al-Jazeera to report the news. My condolences to them and their families, this will be a day that many will remember with sorrow. You can forget about high profile journalists going to Iraq.
Deadly Attack On CBS News Crew, Two Team Members Killed, Correspondent Seriously Injured By Roadside Bomb In Baghdad - CBS News: "
The attack was among a slew of car and roadside bombs left about three dozen people dead before noon Monday, including one explosion that killed 10 people on a bus. Nearly all the attacks occurred in Baghdad.

CBS News Correspondent Kimberly Dozier, 39, sustained serious injuries in the attack and underwent surgery at a U.S. military hospital in Baghdad. She is in critical condition, but doctors are cautiously optimistic about her prognosis.'

Dozier and her crew are among the latest American television journalists to become casualties in Iraq. Former ABC News 'World News Tonight' co-anchor Bob Woodruff and cameraman Doug Vogt suffered severe injuries in a roadside bombing in Iraq Jan. 29, 2006. Woodruff is still recovering from serious head injuries and broken bones. Cameraman Vogt has returned home to France for more rehab.

On April 6, 2003, David Bloom, 39, an American journalist for NBC television, embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq died from an apparent blood clot near Baghdad.

All over the region, explosions began just after dawn, with one roadside bomb killing 10 people and injuring another 12 who worked for an Iranian organization opposed to the regime in Iran, police said. "
Looks like the violence is ramping up for the summer.
