I'm not sure I'll be able to get to the store tomorrow, but as Safeway has only one item on its Friday sale that I'd like to get it won't be a big deal if I don't. They actually have quite a few things on sale this week, but they will remain available until Tuesday, so no rush.
I spent quite a bit of this afternoon reading Debacle, Inc., a long article by Greg Grandin, author of the book Kissinger’s Shadow: The Long Reach of America's Most Controversial Statesman, from which this article, which is primarily about the strange doctor's machinations in the Middle East, was derived. I've long thought of Kissinger as one of the more sinister figures of American government in the 20th century, and Grandin's piece gives considerable substance to my notion of him. I don't often do webloggy linkage to stuff, but I found this article well worth reading— even though I'll probably end up having bad dreams featuring Kissinger's creepy visage tonight.
