Life in AC Land: US Soldier in Iraq; Japanese Toilets & Page Views

Warning: blatant shameless plug post (but isn't that what a blog is for?).

My book review about, "The Last True Story I'll Ever Tell: An Accidental Soldier's Account of the War in Iraq" published on Associated Content this week. If you read my blog post about the author, John Crawford, in September 2005, the article will be familiar. Despite the book being published two years ago, it is still important as long as the War in Iraq continues. You can check out the book below. [BTW - I have an online site interested in my review of Diary of a Dysfunctional Flight Attendant: The Queen of Sky Blog - which is about a fired flight attendant; keep the fingers crossed they'll pick it up].

The big news over on AC is that page views are here! Yippee! It was interesting to see which articles have received the most views and which slagged a bit. Am I surprised my little bit about "How to Use a Japanese Toilet" received the most views? Nope. But I really do need to write a whole book devoted to the art of relief.

I am getting frustrated over there, though. Other writers boasting $50 offers when "all I got was a rock." [Charlie Brown fans will understand that]. I can conclude either my writing really sucks or I just never fit into the clique and it's just time to move on and focus energies elsewhere.

Your writing definitely doesn't suck. I think most of the people on AC who get loads of money write pure trash and/or lie about the money paid.
And using a Japanese toilet is just a prep for Chinese toilets http://travelroads.com/content/index.asp?articleID=108

My stomach turned reading your article! YUCK! At least Japan's bathrooms (and toilets) are clean.
