BBC goes Oprah

And just what is this supposed to accomplish? The only thing missing is Oprah. From the BBC:

Al—Khiyam is one of many towns and villages in southern Lebanon that was heavily bombed in Israel's military campaign against the Hezbollah militant movement.

It was virtually deserted as the bombing reached a crescendo, but since last week's ceasefire residents have been returning home to pick up the pieces.

The BBC News website is inviting readers around the world to put their questions to some of the town's residents.

Discussions will range from war and politics to everyday life, and there will be a similar event on the other side of the border in Israel soon.
