This week I got a very nice hat tip from Tom Ricks on Best Defense and the flood gates of visitors opened. I was struck by two things:
- The rush of visitors gave me the same sense of anxiety I get when unexpected guests stop by TwShiloh world HQ. Do I have any dirty laundry lying around? What’s that funny smell? Do I have any snacks to offer? A bit disconcerting to say the least. So, welcome to any new visitors out there. Hopefully, you like what you see and stick around.
- I totally identified with Marcia Brady when she met Davy Jones. Now, may I suggest we not dwell upon the fact that a kind word from Tom made me identify with an adolescent school girl meeting her crush or look too deeply for any deeper significance. In the words of Peggy Noonan:
“Some things in life need to be mysterious,” Noonan said on Sunday about the release of the torture memos. “Sometimes you need to just keep walking.”
Precisely, Peggy. Precisely.
