Khalid update - non-sensational

Playing it "normal" but keeping an eye on things;

This post over at Daily Kos;

This is what Juan Cole had to say (unverified) about jailed Iraqi blogger Khalid Jarrar:

"Iraqi Blogger Jailed

Iraqi blogger Khalid has been..." etc etc read whole thing including comments.

Apparently Juan Cole has taken down the original and is sitting on his hands about it at the moment. Because this is what great bloggers do best, let everybody know about stuff without over-reacting.

The point; everybody knows Khalid and cares about him. Nobody is ruffled, everybody is watching, some people are worried, and other people are cogently protecting other bloggers by not rushing full scale into "Mandela" mode.

Aren't bloggers great.
