An extremely long day: attention, reflection, tension, confrontation, resolution — and I’m talking about work! The political day had its own disorienting trajectory.
But what I really want to say, for now, is: This is my hundredth post, in just under two months. I wanted to mark it with something appropriate, like a few paragraphs on the generosity of blogs (well, maybe tomorrow); or a link to a new Tolstoy review (a new one is always a joy); a reminder, a sobering look back, at the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, before the month ends (but be warned, some may find this politically incorrect); a first attempt to understand Randy David’s unexpectedly disturbing column last Sunday; or, simply, a favorite website. Choose your poison!
