Quote of the Day

“If an officer cannot figure out Rolling Stone, how can he understand the Taliban?”

— Victor Davis Hanson, at the Corner.

That’s particularly important, given that as Mackubin Thomas Owens wrote in September of 2002, “9/11 revealed an emerging geopolitical reality: that the world’s most important fault line is not between the rich and the poor, but between those who accept modernity and those who reject it.”

And certainly Rolling Stone magazine has made its founder almost as wealthy as the bin Laden family via just such a rejection of modernity.

Update: If you’ll pardon the alliteration, there’s much more on the McChrystal mess from Michelle Malkin.
