OH! I’VE MISSED YOU GUYS! It has been a crazy-busy month for me. I’ve been gone for 3 out of the last 4 weeks. I have been to Michigan, New York, Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, not to mention a week at my parent’s house. It sure is good to be home! (Will be even better once I get my laundry done!) I don’t know how JK and the other CNN personnel handle such travel- I’m exhausted!
I’ve missed a lot on the CNN front, but thankfully not too much concerning JK’s reporting as he was off for a good portion of the last few weeks too. (BTW: Congratulations John and Dana! We at Johnthenewsking wish you ALL THE BEST!!)
Alright enough of that. Let’s get down to business. While playing catch-up on the news I missed while gone, I saw John’s piece on the End of Freedom Fries. All I can say is that it’s about time we put to rest what has to be the single stupidest thing the US Congress has ever done. My health care sucks, but by all means start renaming side dishes… (deep breaths)
And, how nice is it to start seeing some reports that aren’t completely about the Democratic primary? Regardless of who you supported, can’t we all be happy that it’s over now? Speaking of which…
Be sure to check out afagen’s Flicker photo stream entitled Hillary Clinton ends campaign, you might recognize You Know Who in a few of them:
Well, I will leave you today with what you have all been missing:

While traveling I re-read both of Rory Stewart’s books; The Places in Between and The Prince of the Marshes. In my opinion, two of the best books written in the last five years. Even if you only have a passing interest in either Iraq or Afghanistan I would HIGHLY recommend you pick these up. So in honor of that I give you Rory’s interview on Charlie Rose Tomorrow.
