From this morning's Washington Post:

When the leaders of Iran, Turkey and Russia gathered to discuss the future of Syria last week in Ankara, [Japan] was not even invited. Will [Abe] think through the endgame this time?
To which the obvious answer is "Probably not." Although "Certainly not" might be a better bet.

I really appreciate these reports from Earth2.

"Only the names have been changed, to protect the innocent guilty."

I see, in doing a little looking, that Michael Cohen voted for Obama in 2008, but was "disappointed." Hmmm.

Oh, I was supposed to be thinking about Syria? Great day for Bolton to start work

Every time I see a photo of Bolton, I think of Lewis Carroll's "The Walrus and the Carpenter".

I think WE'RE the oysters, though.

Snarki, one of the first poems I ever memorized. It's really come to this?

Hmmm, the little fishes of the sea (some of my favourite characters in literature, and although mentioned in a recitation by Tweedledum and Tweedledee not Humpty Dumpty, strongly connected in my mind with the oysters) were snarki avant la lettre:

I sent a message to the fish:

I told them ‘This is what I wish.’

The little fishes of the sea,
They sent an answer back to me.

The little fishes’ answer was
‘We cannot do it, Sir, because – ‘

I sent to them again to say
‘It will be better to obey.’

The fishes answered, with a grin,
‘Why, what a temper you are in!’

Etc etc. Irresistible, at least to me.

Humpty Dumpty : Tweedledum and Tweedledee
vice versa of course...

So great, GftNC! Thanks.

So The Man in the High Castle is actually a documentary ?
