Baghdad Blog Goes Silent

I've been watching the Baghdad Blog for many weeks now and it's sad to see it go off the air.

Every day, tens of thousands of people turn to the Web seeking updates from a mysterious scribe whose detailed accounts of life in besieged Baghdad have made him a cyberspace celebrity with his 'Baghdad Blog'

Little is known for sure about Salam Pax, whose nom de plume means "peace" in Arabic and Latin. But his Web journal — ostensibly written from his Baghdad home — vividly criticizes the authoritarian rule of Saddam Hussein and the U.S.-British war on his nation.
