Public service announcement (this was meant to go up Aug. 16, sorry, slight hitch with the scheduling function):
James is currently redeploying. This blog may return in a somewhat altered form come the end of September. Keep an eye-out for updates.
In the meantime, keep it real America. It’s been emotional.
…we shall go
Always a little further; it may be
Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
Across that angry or that glimmering sea,
White on a throne or guarded in a cave
There lies a prophet who can understand
Why men were born: but surely we are brave,
Who take the Golden Road to Samarkand.
