Another bit from my journals. At the time I was asking myself what I would say to the young kids who want to become suicide bombers. As with most of these excerpts, they’re just that — pieces lifted out of longer rambles, presented here without beginning or end.

    What does the banner say?

    Hi Kathleen. Thanks to the instant wonder of high speed blogging, you can post comments and get an answer . . . two months later! Oops. Sorry. So the banner… It’s been a while since I asked a Lebanese friend to translate that into Arabic. In part it was an invective against dying for a lie. And that the enemy often isn’t who we think.

    Will you post more of these Mark? Or is there somewhere else they can be seen?
    Many thanks,
