Like baseball players and hedge fund managers, war correspondents keep their own sets of statistics: 

     Number of times in jail (15) 

     Countries expelled from (5) 

     Countries visited (100+) 

     Hospital stays (4) 

     Bones broken (5) 

     Diseases caught (almost all.)

     Ed Barnes has worked in some of the most dangerous places in the world, including Sudan, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Northern Ireland, Sarajevo, Kosovo, and Haiti. Domestically, assignments were often just as risky, such as covering the Red Hook housing projects at the height of the crack epidemic, the militia movement just before the Oklahoma bombings, and Juarez and El Paso during the mass killings of women.
