“The case for McCain is straightforward. The financial crisis has made us forget, or just blindly deny, how dangerous the world out there is. We have a generations-long struggle with Islamic jihadism. An apocalyptic soon-to-be-nuclear Iran. A nuclear-armed Pakistan in danger of fragmentation. A rising Russia pushing the limits of revanchism. Plus the sure-to-come Falklands-like surprise popping out of nowhere.”

"This sassy cephalopod takes no prisoners," she added.”

Out and About

It has been a busy weekend in Korea with various festivals and weddings keeping me pretty busy this weekend. Van Hunt’s self titled record has been providing some rhythms during my bus rides.
