Our far-flung correspondents: one sabbatical ago

My USMC bud frequently includes a "One Sabbatical Ago" feature in his weekly reports.
One Sabbatical Ago (May, 2003) he was deployed on Operation Iraqi Freedom.
This week's feature includes the following, for which I can legitimately claim some credit: I sent him the tabloid he's reading!
Side trip to Babylon. Not only was it cool to see where Jesus grew up (... don’t bother to check the actual Bible), but I got to go to the stadium where Saddam fed Christians to lions – and read about Saddam feeding Christians to lions.
