Slate “got rid of”:http://www.slate.com/id/2225909/ the only thing they had that was worth reading: Today’s Papers. That was the third thing I read every day. Replacing it with a news aggregator is a terrible idea because, well, Slate’s judgment is generally poor; I would rather the staff would just stick to summarizing the 5 major papers.
Attention enterprising bloggers: there’s now a niche to be filled.
A FoKerr tells me that NPR has “Hot Iran Action”:http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=112119429 going all week.
My friend and old colleague Wade Boese has a “new gig,”:http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2009/08/19/tauscher_sworn_in_t_bureau_takes_shape according to L Rozen. Congratulations to him.
But I feel compelled to remind people that “George Tenet and Ron Jeremy were high school classmates.”:http://www.totalwonkerr.net/1430/jeffrey-on-tenet-and-libya
I have yet to listen to it, but my old debate coach and former fellow WRUV DJ posted “this radio show”:http://collegeofmusicalknowledge.blogspot.com/2009/08/1984-08-17-atomic-mixpost-nuclear-party.html from 1984 that’s all about nuclear weapons.
I am thinking seriously about making this blog mostly about WMD and heavy metal.
about posting documents and going meta every now and again. I figure I’ve earned the right to pontificate a little after all these years.
I did not know about “Arms Control TV”:http://www.armscontrol.org/armscontroltv until just now.
I used to be on TV too. Just saying.
His departure has made me quite sad. You all know that he’s got a gift for Teh Blogging, so read him at ACW or wherever else he may end up; personally, I hope he takes an ACW commenter’s suggestion and starts a blog called Complete Pollacks.
I always knew Josh was smart, but I didn’t realize that he’s really fucking funny as well.
Some places are fun to blog at. This has been one of ’em, Lord knows.
But it’s become apparent that TW.com is no longer Paul Kerr’s Arms Control blog, as advertised at the upper right. It’s a shame, but it’s a fact. Instead, it’s just this Joshua Pollack guy posting here every now and again. And that makes things a touch awkward.
Paul has been compelled to fall silent, and I can’t really hold up my end as I once did. Life has gotten busy, fast. So it’s time for me to bow out.
If you’ve enjoyed following my random thoughts, fear not. I plan to continue making occasional contributions at ACW. Like this one on “North Korea’s missile program”:http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/2404/what-is-north-korea-capable-of.
Thanks, Paul! It’s been a pleasure.
And here it is: your final “musical bonus”:http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4rnk_dion-the-wanderer_music!
