McClatchy's Baghdad bureau employs a host of local reporters and drivers. Without them our work wouldn't be possible.
Besides shuttling us to appointments, translating, gathering news, and catching the cultural mistakes of the Western reporters here, they also contribute to a terrific blog, called Inside Iraq. It contains first-hand accounts about what it's like to live here, day in and day out.
Sometimes the staff has trouble coming up with things to blog about. They often say their lives aren't interesting enough to warrant sharing their stories. I always argue the opposite. To McClatchy's mostly Western audience, everything about their daily lives is fascinating.
But "everything" is probably a little too broad of an answer to give when the staff asks for blog ideas.
So I thought I'd ask you, our readers.
What questions do you have about daily life here in Iraq? What do you want to know?
Send your suggestions by commenting on this blog post, and I'll forward them on to our local bloggers.
Answers will appear here, at Inside Iraq.
