Tom - just a quick question, maybe it's worthy of a blog post. I figure that now is the best time to ask, as you've just gotten back from your trip. The question is: how do you reconcile all the information that gets thrown at you constantly? I think many of your readers are probably into their own pet theories about how to Shrink the Gap and build a better planet, but there are so many nuanced subjects relating to these topics that it's difficult not to get caught up in them. I guess info might stick to your ribs more because you're out actively talking to flags and we're passively behind computers, but I read lots of articles too - just wondering if you have any good tips or tricks for unwinding your brain and sorting out info. I appreciate your use of the blog as a "dumping ground"! Thanks
Of course, what's really hilarious is the lack of any sort of political / intellectual content on my blog in the last couple of weeks, as I've been sorta busy. Instead, any new readers get a list of celebrity foods and my complaining about snow.
Speaking of which, what was the final verdict on John Cusack-of-potatoes? Yea or Nay?
