This is taking shameless self-promotion on NLT to the outer limit, but I've been lax in cross-posting stuff lately. This week began in Houston
(the blowout preventer in the photo is the red thing on the left) and ended in California (where I am now), with two days in Washington in between.
Let's see--what happened this week? Oh yeah, we bagged a bad guy, which brought out the worst in Noam Chomsky
(what a surprise), but also provided yet another look back at Churchill's The River War
, and an erroneous first guess
on GoogleEarth on the location of Abbottabad's most famous residential address, and an observation
about Churchill's definition of a fanatic as someone who can't change their mind and won't change the subject.
Happy mother's day, have a great week. I'm heading out to the beach.
