political happenings...

Two interesting things happened today.
1) Assad was interviewed by CNN. See the transcript at http://edition.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/meast/10/12/alassad.transcript/. I wonder what has been "edited" out of it.
2) Ghazi Kanaan, Syria's interior minister, committed suicide today. Or, alternatively, he "committed suicide". Go to http://faculty-staff.ou.edu/L/Joshua.M.Landis-1/syriablog/2005/10/ghazi-kanaan-most-senior-alawi-suicide.htm to read an interesting post about the issue.

In regards to this event, I'll try to see what my friends and acquaintances think. I have not posted in a while thanks to busy-ness here on the ground -- moving into a new apartment. A new big fat post is in the works...

it's dangerous to promise a "big post soon." whenever i write that, something inevitably comes up and i can't post.

but if you manage to do it, i'm looking forward to seeing the post
