Reporting in from Iraq

I heard from Rafe today. He said he shaved his head bald; has been doing Olympic weightlifting to strengthen his neck muscles (apparently for a better advantage in a fistfight), sit ups while being punched in the stomach (same reason). All in all, he sounds pretty upbeat. It's hard to believe this is the same guy who loves to sleep till noon; read about technology, science and engineering; debate spiritual matters and who dances around the kitchen with funny hats on his head and waggles his booty at me when I'm trying to make dinner and be serious. He also sent me an email.

It has been so hot here and there is hardly any privacy. It is amazing how cool 80 degrees indoors feels after being outside in 117 degree weather. 75 degrees is actually rather chilly.
