If you were put off by the title of the Baghdad Blogger’s Salam Pax: The Clandestine Diary of an Ordinary Iraqi, you’re in good company. Pax himself says:
Donâ€™t you just hate that title? To start with I would never use a word like clandestine, and what is wrong with [Salam Pax: The Baghdad Blog]? It gets worse, the German title is [Letâ€™s Get Bombed; greetings from Baghdad]. We did have a talk about these things but being the novice I am and sitting so far away from where all that was happening left me with a title like [Letâ€™s get bombed], dear oh dear.
