Woke Up to the News that Bin Laden Was Dead

I thought, momentarily, “Oh good. Now the War on Terror is over. Now they can pack up their toys and get the fuck out of Afghanistan. Now they can use the federal budget for education, infrastructure, and valuable social programs like all the respectable 1st world countries do.”

Then I got up, put some coffee on the stove. Started to be a bit more realistic.

Oh well. It was a nice fantasy while it lasted.


How did I end up in Madrid? Why am I still here 12 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
