A prolific, erudite, and underappreciated blogger known as "Kat from Missouri" has been a frequent commenter on the Iraqi blogs (and has favored my own comment corner with her posts as well). She is a political moderate but a fanatic for human rights - as we all should be. Her topics include both foreign and domestic issues. Go check out her aptly-titled homepage at The Middle Ground. Be advised that Kat's posts tend to be longer than the average blog, but they're well worth reading in their entirety; I recommend printing a hard copy.
