When Christmas comes late...

Ever since the PPP gave Musharraf a 72-hour deadline to publicly resign on August 16th, I've been breathlessly awaiting Monday Morning to jump on Google Reader and eat up all the commentary from my favorite and most respected foreign affairs and region-centric blogs and think tanks. Monday Morning arrived, the formal news of the resignation arrived, but no good post yet! I am worse than a child on Christmas, refreshing the tool compulsively until it crashes my browser... c'mon J Foust, write something meaningful that I can be in awe of!

Edit: Ahhhh. I can now breathe a deep sigh of relief: the bloggers did not get sucked into a vacuum, or rededicate themselves to their regular jobs (god forbid!). Troy via AM; b via MofA; Resignation speech liveblogged.

Meanwhile, some bad news about the recent surge of violence aimed at soft targets: "yesterday three female aid workers for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and their Afghan driver were shot dead by gunmen who opened fire on their vehicle near the capital Kabul." Please read this post by a coworker of theirs, it's unreal. Umm. My Big Brother The Marine is back Stateside, working off his last two months for the mil'tary in SanD. Still wanna go, Mac Attack? Huh huh?
