War and bread, and other things

A few interesting things I missed this weekend or late last week:

The Way Out of War, a new blueprint from George McGovern, in Harper's. Seems McGovern has been resurrected, if the recently oft-shown documentary on alternative satellite stations is a sign....

Into the Abyss: Reporting Iraq, is a special report on war correspondents from the Columbia Journalism Review.

On the new Defense secretary nominee: The Robert Gates File from National Security Archives, has excerpts from a book about Gates' Iran-Contra involvement.

The Secret of Great Bread, New York Times story on a new method of no-knead breadmaking. The dough is raised over 20 hours and baked in a preheated closed pot. The recipe.
Always interested in finding a new bread method, although I have finally perfected mine. I'll be trying this one.

And, a new photo blog: Paris Daily Photo, from Eric, a Parisian resident. Note this is a part of a chain of City Daily photoblogs, with many cities participating. No one in Miami yet. There is one from Nashville, though apparently not all the sites adhere to the 'daily' requirement....


  • Psst! Get ready to roll out the Red Carpet for Yours Truly in the near future. A buddy of Ol' PJ here, Congressman Billy Bob aka John Armor, is going to be running for Congress in YOUR North Carolina district in a couple of years and I will be up there to help him campaign. Please be sure to grovel properly in my divine presence. However, don't worry about formality. Just treat me as you would any other major deity.

    of the surgery itself, the status of the patient's skin after the
    fact is often not taken into account

    Incoming phone calls can be automatically routed to your VoIP phone, regardless of where you are connected to the network.
    Take your VoIP phone with you on a trip, and wherever you connect to the Internet, you can receive incoming calls.
    Free phone numbers for use with VoIP are available in the USA, UK and other countries from organizations such as VoIP User.
    Call center agents using VoIP phones can work from anywhere with a sufficiently fast and stable Internet connection.
