Jules Crittenden, city editor and columnist for the Boston Herald, has started a personal blog to eat up all those spare hours left over after doing two jobs. Freed from the constraints of bureaucracy and newsprint, he is taking advantage of his ample supply of information and imagination. In one entry, he imagines a cave somewhere in Waziristan:
Achmed: My brothers, have you see this? A new filthy Crusader blog is soiling al—Internet! The Jules Crittenden of al—Boston Herald in Amerikiyah!
Farouk: What kind of name is this, Joo'less Kree'tindin?
Ali: An alcohol—swilling infidel pig's name, what do you think, you donkey!
Achmed: Wait, I think I know of this Christian dog. Is he not the infamous Thief of Baghdad? He who robbed the riches and destroyed the culture of Iraq? They say he was worse than the Mongol hordes! Even among his own people was he repudiated when, as the Mother of All Battles raged, he had the effrontery to alert other Crusaders of enemies lurking!
