Letters: Iraqi Burials, Wok Spirit and the 'Foil'

Melissa Block and Robert Siegel read from listeners' emails from the past week. They comment on a story out of Iraq about a Muslim man who buries the unclaimed dead, Melissa Block's quest for the elusive Wok Hay, and the reporter in the White House pressroom affectionately referred to as the Goyal Foil.

We also share a brief message from sound designer Randy Thom about the progress of our Search for Sound project.
