There have not been a lot of posts the last few days and I apologize. It was my mothers 85th birthday and my sister and brother came to town to help us celebrate. Between house guests and road trips I have had little time. The last of the house guests will depart in the morning and life should return to normal. I just received my review copy of Pepe Escobar's book Red Zone Blues, a snapshot of Baghdad during the surge. It's short and I hope to have a review in the next couple of days.
The picture of Mom was taken in front of Sahalie Falls on the McKenzie River on Saturday.
