93!

From a blog you might like -- mostly entertainment themed, with occasional dips into politics -- Hollywood and comics writer John Rogers's* "Kung Fu Monkey," this bit of thoughtful advice for those seeking to influence other countries by the use of force:

"Please remember -- when you bomb people for their own good, they rarely take the point in the way you hoped. Empathy is our friend. When America was attacked, its population became incredibly nationalistic, and rallied wildly behind a leader who was of mediocre popularity beforehand. Assume other countries are also populated by human beings."

More soon, I hope. I'm swamped. :0
