The Long Road Back - Part 1

Well, it's been a crazy week - what else can I say?

I have started a new contract job, which leaves me little free time to pursue my passions for the news of the day. I hope to get a feel for the new schedule soon, and be back to regular postings in the near future. meanwhile, enjoy this story about two men with a shared purpose, if different goals.

Packing for Afghanistan - Part 3

As I mentioned before, I really like this story, and not just because I know so many of the people involved. I've long believed that military prowess will only take you so far, and that a nation truly conquers adversity when it bends down to lift its enemies up and help them. This notion is summed up at the end of the movie "Charlie Wilson's War" and should be a lesson to everyone pushing for military intervention as an end solution to global US policy in and of itself.

To my friends at TBT, my apologies for not doing your portraits justice - I hope that I did a better job of capturing your spirit.
