Bother me tomorrow


Oh, look! It's Bunn Park, my other backyard. My world is so small.

* We're back to Afghanistan, where archeologists "have less than four months to do three decades worth of excavation." Even though it's buried at the bottom of the article, I'm glad someone else is finally taking notice of this:

So not only will Afghanistan lose an ancient site, a key to unlocking its important history, but the country will lose the land and everything living on it. And what happens when Afghanistan needs copper or oil or iron for its own development? Will they have to buy it back from China at inflated rates?

These mining operations should have, or could have, been the beginnings of an industrial age (and all that goes with it and comes after it) that the people of Afghanistan so desperately need. Instead, it was rigged so a government owned foreign company will get the profits.

* Today I'll buy no sorrows.
