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.
Don't sweat your bad guess on Obama's hideout.
and, besides, it's probably not half as embarrassing as your declaration that the days of "offshore oil spills were likely a thing of the past."
