I was listening to a report on NPR this morning on the Iraq constitutional referendum. Towards the end of the piece, a loud beeping could be heard behind the field reporter in Baghdad. The anchor said, "I'd better let you go, it sounds like you have another call."

The reporter chuckled ruefully and said with infinite resignation, "No, actually the electricity just went out."
