Drone and buzz

    I’m off blog duty, due to the fact that I’m spending most of today stuck in a seat at 30,000 feet.

    It was Joni Mitchell who perhaps put the best spin on plane travel:

    The drone of flying engines
    Is a song so wild and blue
    It scrambles time and seasons if it gets thru to you…

    Once time becomes sufficiently unscrambled, I’ll be back. That would be tomorrow afternoon. In the meantime, I recommend this new magazine piece by Mark “Black Hawk Down” Bowden, an old colleague of mine. Bowden’s detailed take on Joe Biden is particularly interesting in light of the latest buzz, circulated by Bob Woodward, about the possibility of Biden yielding his slot on the ’12 ticket to Hillary Clinton…and the latest denials of the buzz.
