Journal of the Plague Years

Michael Ledeen asked me on the phone if an hour ago if I was “feeling better.” He was referring to my less than excited review of Arnold’s speech yesterday. (Yes, it was probably better than I said it was… I didn’t have any dinner.) And I told him I was feeling better… I did get some lunch… and a good night’s sleep into the bargain… until I read the news from Russia. Suicide bombers in a school with four hundred kids?!… It’s hard to wrap your mind around what kinds of psychopaths those people are. Let’s hope one day this is over. Given the events of the last few days in Moscow, Israel, Iraq and now this, it’s hard to be optimistic.
