It will take a crowbar to pry CNN’s Anderson Cooper out of the Middle East.

After almost a month in war-ravaged Israel and Lebanon and in Cyprus — longer than any other major anchor — Cooper has no plans to come home.

Makes for a great story lead, except Cooper does plan to come home:

Cooper says he wants to be back in the states by the end of the month, to cover the Katrina anniversary. “I think Brian Williams and I are two people trying to keep that story alive.”
