Good news, international style. Very glad to hear about this. I hope she doesn't write a book, I hope she just goes back to being a journalist. When Gene and I lived for a short while in northern Virginia, we visited the Newseum and it was almost as delightful as the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The most moving part, though, was the Journalist's Memorial, a memorial to journalists dying in the pursuit of the news (sometimes, but not always, in warzones). I know that the work of soldiers is the greater work in the pursuit of peace, but I still feel so moved by journalists who responsibly try to report from warzones. In 2002, when Daniel Pearl was killed the first thing I thought about was that he'd be in this memorial. I am so pleased that Jill Carroll won't be joining him.
