Ringtones to the Rescue

Young Iraqis are using text messages to lighten their lives. The content of their texts and ringtones speak “volumes about the state of affairs here: jokes and songs about suicide bombings, sectarianism, power outages, gas prices, Saddam Hussein and George Bush,” reports USA Today.
“It’s not like there’s much to do around here,” said one young man. “It’s perhaps the only venue to express ourselves.”
