Daily reading for foreign affairs afficionados with an emphasis on the culture and literature of Africa and poetry in general. Also, a repository of musings from life in the PGON (Pentagon) and as a post-grad student. Most of my book reviews are now over at www.kruzoo.blogspot.com
"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist." -Anne Applebaum

If you are a Pentagon Monday Protester, it is VERY hard for me (or any of the passers-by at whom you are 'raving', literally raving at) to take you seriously when you are wearing Mickey Mouse Ears.
That is all.
This is not one of the Pentagon protesters but you get the idea.
