At some point, when things calm down a bit, I’ll take a moment to blog a little more reflectively about the events of the last few days here in Yemen.
In the meantime, I’m discovering that being a newspaper journalist in a rapidly developing news story - you’re running for your life just to stand still.
Fifty percent of the work I filed yesterday was spiked as new developments, late yesterday, made a lot of what I’d written irrelevant. Even a non time sensitive analysis piece was pressed over the metal prong as more dramatic events took priority. After a long day working from 7am until 1am, today, we’ll do it all over again.
