I've been side-tracked, of late, by projects at work and an (ill-fated?) attempt to write some fiction of my own.

In the meantime, take a look at this. For the next six weeks or so, until it is pulled in time for the writer to return home, I expect this blog to be a very interesting read. (Note, for example, the author's attention to detail when it comes to the smells of Kandahar Air Field.)

The book Cryderman points to looks really interesting -- if only for its behind-the-scenes look at the Liberals making their decision to go to war. (Really? Paul Martin, a man who strategized for years and years, who literally put Canada's economy back on track in the 90s, didn't understand we were at war? With battles? Don't tell me he thought, somehow, Canadians were in Afghanistan for peace-keeping reasons?)
