A pointless post (but then, aren't they all?)
current mood: tired
The New York Times Magazine has a cover article this week on the resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Our local paper was a bit ahead of the curve on this, since they published a series of articles titled "Afghanistan: The Forgotten War" about two years ago. It seems that Afghanistan was forgotten by most Americans not long after it began. I guess the cynic in me would say the government wanted that. Can you just imagine how much dirt about the Bush family would come to light if Osama bin Laden were ever actually captured?
Anyway, I haven't actually read the article--or much of anything else not written by John Grisham--today. So I can't really say much about it at this point. I've pretty much done nothing today. But hey, its cold, drizzly, and dreary outside, plus its a weekened. So I'm allowed, right?
OK, I take that back. I haven't done nothing today. I've written this totally pointless boring Livejournal post. So I guess the day isn't a total wash after all.
