Sleep Deprivation in Iraq - and Car Talk
From: Lieutenant Commander Trevis Stamper
Dear Click and Clack:
I am currently deployed to the International Zone in Baghdad, Iraq. Like many of the men and woman here, I rarely have a full night's sleep.
Needless to say most of us look like we are in the final stages of sleep deprivation. To make a short story long, I couldn't sleep the other night (as usual) and decided to listen to your show on my IPod. To my utter astonishment, I fell asleep almost immediately and slept better than I have since I left my family 8 months ago. Your show has turned out to be the best recipe for insomnia and I have recommended you two to all my shipmates in hopes that they too can benefit from the medical miracles of your show. As a matter of fact, we are proposing that the coalition begin broadcasting your show throughout Iraq in hopes that the insurgents will fall asleep.
