Hey gang, Abu Muqawama apologizes to the readership for being MIA. He has been traveling these past few days and has another week of traveling ahead of him. Many thanks to Dr. iRack especially for picking up the slack.
Second, for no apparent reason and despite Abu Muqawama long admiring her national security reporting, Laura Rozen's blog "War and Piece" has never been added to the blogroll. This problem has now been corrected.
In other news, the Gladys Knight version of "Midnight Train to Georgia" is on at the Mocha Hut right now. Greatest song ever? Maybe. Abu Muqawama always sings along with the Pips to the great embarrassment of those around him: "I know you will!"
