Being a little snarkky, shouldn't it have been distributed 3 years ago?

Whatever "snarkyness" is, I must be in that condition also, but "better late than never." pl


So are all Arab southpaws "corrected" in childhood as I was?

Apart from that, a wonderfully concise and humanistic view into the culture.


Thanks, Pat. This is good, all the way around. I've read the WWII equivalent of this - which its certainly less informative with less content than its contemporary - but it also has good info. in it, nonetheless.


I hope it's better late than never, but I have this scared feeling that now that things are becoming desperate we are finally giving the competent some power. But it's late in the game and we're not really trying. For example we give the State Department and other civilian agencies the go ahead to work on a provincial level rather than have twenty something politically correct rightists run the rebuilding, but we cut off funds. So if things fall apart the competent are left holding the bag, their carrers suffer and the incompetent triumph and escape blame for their foul ups.
