New York, New York

Good morning, my droogies. In a few hours I’m off to New York to attend the annual convention of the South Asian Journalists’ Association. My apologies to my friends in the Big Apple; I probably won’t get a chance to visit any of you since my few free timeslots have been filled by family!

I will leave you with this: just as we thought some headway was being gained against the Forces of Evil –what with expanded powers having been denied the Patriot Act– comes news that the inhumane “modern gulag” at Guantanamo Bay is being expanded. And who gets the $30 million contract for the expansion? Well, Halliburton, of course. You know, the Cubans should just quintuple the rent on that place.
