I notice from my logs that the visitors at my blog went from around 100 a day to 1587 yesterday. I am guessing that most of the newcomers are not friends & family. You were probably drawn here by the notoriety of my comments re FS assignments in Iraq.
My blog is not designed for a general public, but I certainly welcome anybody who wants to read it. Most of what and how I write is idiosyncratic and probably interesting only to those who know me. I don’t expect you will again find anything nearly as controversial as the posting that drew you here. It was very interesting to see blog posts about what I had written. My sad conclusion is that many bloggers (Certainly not all. Some were good) write before they read. Some are almost embarassingly supportive; others are critical and some are just stupid. I guess it is easier to have an opinion than seek accuracy.
Anyway, even in an interesting place like Iraq, I tend to think prosaic thoughts, so if you are looking for excitement you probably came to the wrong place. You are welcome to stay, but I won’t be put out if you don’t.
