: As I drove into Jersey City this morning, I saw people converging on a large mosque in all varieties of formal and foreign dress. It’s the start of Eid. And then I got to work and found email from Zeyad, who tells me:
By the way, today we are celebrating the first day of the Id holidays and the atmosphere in Baghdad is very different. People everywhere. I haven’t seen such celebrations since before the war. It’s all really fun. Anyway, I’m off to a party right now. so see you later.
