Just got back to Washington from the Middle East, or what I called the Middle West when I lived in Japan. I’m tuckered out — but may be back on later.
For those in Arkansas, I’ll be down in Little Rock on Tuesday speaking at noon for the Arkansas Committee on Foreign Relations. My event doesn’t seem to be up on the ACFR’s website — but I will be there.
Thursday and Friday, I will be in New York. I’m serving as master of ceremonies for an event with Parag Khanna on Thursday evening, the 17th, in Manhattan. If there are TWN readers who might want to attend, email me and I’ll forward an invite. Khanna will be talking about his book The Second World: Empires and Influence in the New Global Order.
In other updates, the Financial Times‘ Edward Luce picked up my commentary on Obama’s less than inspiring position on continuing an isolation strategy with Hamas.
More later — and consider this an open thread.
