Last night at the movies Anna explained who James Bond is to Emily and who Wolf Blitzer is to me.*

“On October 24 in Northwest Pakistan, two children were injured in a drone strike authorized by the President of the United States. Other kids have been killed by similar strikes; Americans do not know their names. Unlike Malala Yousafzai, the teenager from the Swat Valley, who was shot by the Taliban for promoting girls’ education, Madonna did not dedicate a song to them, nor has Angelina Jolie spoken out on their behalf. No mass vigils have been held in their honor. Instead, people like Time magazine columnist Joe Klein defend such drone attacks as justifiable pre-emptive measures to protect “our” children, with such chilling statements as “the bottom line is: in the end, whose four year old gets killed?””

I’m not even going to get into it, but the reason I want to believe in karma is that fantastic feeling when you see someone get what they deserve.

Helpful if you know an introvert.:

(The piece is actually billed as “An Introvert’s Guide to Surviving the Holidays” but I would think most introverts have already identified ways to cope—what we need is for others to allow us to do so and stop asking “What’s wrong?” or insisting we should “Go out and have fun!”)
