It's my birthday!
It's just after midnight now, which means that it is the 11th and thus my birthday. I am going to celebrate by going to bed, since it has been a long and incredible weekend. We shall take stock another day, but for the moment let me just say that globalisation seems to have taken a very severe knock, and I hope to wake up later today to read the news that Georgia has accepted Russia's terms for a ceasefire. Now that would make for a quite wonderful birthday surprise.
To the hundreds of people who flooded here over the past couple of days I say welcome and I hope that your visits were worthwhile.
In the last 48 hours I have created fifteen posts that have dealt with the South Ossetia Conflict and that has to be some kind of record. I just hope that you found them as interesting to read as they were to write.
See you later today, folks!
