First, Happy Thanksgiving to my 2 or 3 hypothetical regular readers and anyone else who happens upon this place in the next 12 hours.

Second, to anyone with connections to Mumbai I truly hope you and yours are safe as the more information comes out about the situation there the worse it seems to become.

Third, a bit of good news lost amidst the awful reports coming out of India: The Iraqi Parliament has approved the Status of Forces Agreement, thus signaling the beginning of the end of the major American presence in Iraq.

I’d write more but I’m shortly off to my own Thanksgiving, so I’ll try to be back later tonight.
