Technical problems at my home place sort of scuttled today’s Friday reads.
But I do want to call your attention to a truly compelling story tucked inside this morning’s New York Times about U.S. troops turning the tables on the Taliban in Afghanistan. It’s riveting, edge-of-your seat stuff.
It’s also a timely reminder that while we’re sniping about tea parties and tax deductions and marriage, Americans are doing a very tough job overseas. Putting our ideological eye-gouging on hold for a minute to remember that would probably be a good thing. So please read it.
Now, back to mind-numbing demagoguery, already in progress.
