What is Normal?

Andrew Sullivan links to this BBC site where Iraqis write about their day-to-day experiences. Now Sullivan wants to believe that these are "normal" Iraqis, yet, I have a hard time believing that it is normal for people in Iraq to speak English. Also, this list reveals three of them to be doctors or med students, one a civil servant and one a housewife (plus two UK citizens). This is obviously interesting, but to claim it represents the voice of "normal" Iraqis is like asking a random college professor her opinion on Bush and claiming it represents "normal" Americans.

Debt Consolidation can help you reduce your interest burden by charging an interest rate lower than the rate on your existing loans.
