The Short List: A Flak Jacket in Your Carry-On
FARAI CHIDEYA, host:
Before we're done reviewing things you might want to remember or forget, allow us to offer another DAY TO DAY short list. Short lists are little audio puzzles we like to run now and then. See if you can figure out the common theme of this list, compiled and read by NPR's Karen Grigsby Bates.
KAREN GRIGSBY BATES: Saudi Arabia, Burundi, Uzbekistan, Israel, the West Bank and Gaza, Cote d'Ivoire, Philippines, Pakistan, Kenya, Nepal, Lebanon, Bosnia-Herzegovina.
(Soundbite of music)
BATES: Some of the countries for which the US State Department listed travel warnings for American citizens in 2005.
CHIDEYA: Thanks to NPR's Karen Grigsby Bates for that short list.
Stay tuned. There's more to come on DAY TO DAY from NPR News.
