I'm off to Africa now for a volunteer vacation/watching lots of wildlife, so probably no posting for a while (mid-July). I may find an internet cafe somewhere and post something though.
I couldn't resist adding this news reference: increasing calls for withdrawing US troops from Iraq. It seems to me the 2 possible options are to increase troops or to withdraw them, but not George "Stay the Course No Matter How Stupid" Bush's current troop level.
So here's an idea: increase the troops in one area of Iraq, and withdraw them in another, and see which one works better.
Back in a couple weeks!
