The Washington Times - June 4, 2009, 03:12PM

After finishing my first year at the Kennedy School (no thanks to STATA and cost curve models!) today I head out to Qatar and Egypt 10 days later for a journalism program through USAID and the Carnegie Corporation. After that, I’ll head to Israel for two months writing for the Jerusalem Post. 

Along the way, I will be blogging at Politics 101 from The Pearl to the headquarters of Al Jazeera. Thanks for reading and I welcome suggestions.
