Today's news is about the release of Jill Carroll, the journalist kidnapped in Iraq. She is safe, well, and emphasizing that she was well treated by her captives.
Back in January, right after the kidnapping, Riverbend posted a eulogy for Carroll's driver and interpreter, who was killed during the kidnapping.
Today I spent daytime hours at work, where the breakroom TV is usually on Fox or CNN. I'll be surprised if Alan is mentioned, unless Jill herself brings him up.
