Also known as December.
In the last twelve days, my car has broken down and been fixed, I’ve found a new apartment, I registered to vote, went to a hearing at the county courthouse, replaced my work computer that self-immolated unexpectedly, and tried, in vain, to shop for winter holiday presents.
You can perhaps understand my lack of posting.
And so, in lieu of the usual foreign policy-military-foreign development thinkiness, have this amusing quote from Overheard in New York. (Real content soon. Unless something else goes awry.)
Teenage boy, explaining why he joined the Air Force: We’ve been around since World War II. We fought against the Germans and sank several submarines. We also killed a whale, but that’s not the point.
–Bard High School, Queens
Isn’t that why everyone joins? Apart from the whale, of course.
