Breaking news

(1) For your reading pleasure, now on the shelf is Walter Le Chien Qui P├Ęte (see this post if you do not understand why such a fact is relevant to this blog).

(2) The roads around the Academic Center of GW have been closed and the student center rendered a media staging area. Rumor is that VP Dick Cheney is in the GW hospital. Perhaps I should not have conducted my 7.30 AM activity today).

Update: Rumor, as Chaucer or Shakespeare or one of those blokes would say, would say, is mendacious. Turns out it was not the VP.

DC seems to be a central spot for the mysterious closing of roads and the sudden swarming of men in dark suits.

It was, as it turns out, the president of Pakistan giving a press conference at GW. No hospital involved.

Yeah, I was on the sixth floor of Rome when this was going down, and my friend Dan told me (correctly, as it turned out) that it was President Musharraf.

I knew this at 2:15 on Friday, so you have no excuse for being a victim of the rumour mill. It's all about being in the loop, JJ.
