Small world. Josh Marshall, my favorite famous blogger dude, is looking for an update from Rick Jervis of the Chicago Tribune on a story Jervis wrote Sept. 30 about Iraqi insurgents using weapons and ammo looted from the now famous Al Qa Qaa complex.

Funny that, because Jervis ate at Tulip Cafe on Sunday on his way back to the U.S. from Iraq. Unfortunately, there was some brunch madness going on, with one especially short-tempered waiter having a total meltdown in front of the customers. So I didn't get a chance to partake in small talk about piddly stuff like Iraqi insurgents and looted weapons caches.

By the way, how do you pronounce Qa Qaa? Because it looks a lot like "caca," as in doo-doo. My guess is that it's an iambic foot, giving Al Qa Qaa the same metric rhythm as "Al Capone."
