    Ben — thanks for the note. I think America’s national security portfolio is in the worst shape that it has been in decades upon decades — worse than after the Vietnam war. There are other images I’d think of than an old man — maybe a reckless, beer-binging alcoholic that can’t balance check books or get it together might be appropriate. But where we stand now — until there is management reorganization — is pretty crappy. So, I stand by Tom Toles’ depiction.
    Good to see you and friends in Berkeley!
    best, steve

    I wouldn’t expect that kind of defeatist stuff out of you, Steve. One can acknowledge that the U.S. has serious, difficult problems without casting us, as a nation, as a moribund old man. Not all indicators suggest trouble; far from it. If nothing else, we can at least say that we are more and more a nation of “people” rather than a nation of “men”.
