I am in Istanbul, Turkey. I have had a couple of discussions about Iraq. There

was a couple of people that I had met prior to the Iraq trip and knew I was going.

But it is very interesting to discuss or not discuss Iraq with people here.

I find that even though I have spent 1 month and 3 days in Iraq. They do not believe

a word I say. They have pre-conceived ideas and opinions that do not change.

I like to look up words. I will try to paraphrase how I a long long time ago tried to understand

the word "Bigot"

I got it from the dictionary:

Main Entry: big·ot

Pronunciation: 'bi-g&t

Function: noun

Etymology: Middle French, hypocrite, bigot

Date: 1661

: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices

- big·ot·ed /-g&-t&d/ adjective

- big·ot·ed·ly adverb

That says it pretty well I think.
