by Bill Kavanagh: I'm thinking about Afghanistan this morning. Not so much because I'm a real foreign policy wonk... mostly I'm thinking about it because I read a blog called Here and Far, which my blog-friend Matt Mabe and his girlfriend Molly write. Matt is stationed in Gardez, Afghanistan and Molly is a writer here in the US. Matt is battling not only the Taliban, but also the depressing holiday angst that comes with going without his home, his girlfriend, his family, and the security which comes with waking up in a bed no one is presently trying to shell.
My heart goes out to Matt and to Molly.
