Young men who like their comforts, and a dainty table, or who wish to pass their time pleasantly in the company of women, must not go to Arabia.

—Carsten Niebuhr, Description of Arabia, 1772

Even though the romantic view of gallant and honourable noble savages that permeates western impressions of the region is laced with a lot of latent homoeroticism I still think that there are many things in the cradle of civilization that are worth visiting.

the kid was willing to take the ultimate risk just for a story...

give the kid a break. not only give him a break, if he has even the slightest ability to actually write, give him a job.

I wonder how long it will take for the TV movie..

The excellent adventure of Farris Hassan, the 16-year-old Ft. Lauderdale teen who skipped out on his high-school journalism class in order to report first-hand on the elections in Iraq, ended its current chapter on Sunday when he returned home to his family after his nearly three-week journey.

He arrived at Miami International Airport shortly after 7 p.m. to a crush of awaiting journalists and photographers, though he could say nothing as his family rushed him out of the terminal.

"He's just extremely tired and overwhelmed – and so am I," the boy's mother, Shatha Atiya, a psychologist, told the press, as reported by the Miami Herald.

"He's tired and very overwhelmed with everything that happened," reiterated his sister, Shehnaz Hassan.

But Farris's 23-year-old brother, Hayder Hassan, was more outspoken, according to the Balitmore Sun. Said Hayder: "I'm furious with him. He knows the ass whuppin' he's going to get."

Whether or not his seat was red, Farris finally spoke to the Associated Press later on Sunday, in a phone call from his father's car. "I do want to tell you how flattered I am. The media has been very, very kind to me. ... I hope to get a good night's rest."

I don't know, I think Hollywood just wants this story. I don't think his purpose was to impress Hollywood, the fact that he did is coincidental.

I still find it very interesting. Being a wizard, I enjoy the art of the adventure.

All I know is, some anchor lady on CNN offered him an internship, and she was only half kidding.

I'd be interested to read his thoughts on the goings on in Iraq.
