Safe, sound, and stir-crazy already

So a peace jirga began this morning, and as a result, pretty much everything in Kabul is closed down, including my office and any restaurant catering to the expat crowd. I'd planned to post later today to break the lock-down boredom, but given that news reports are now talking of rockets, suicide bombers, and the evacuation of some delegates, I'm just posting briefly to note that our guesthouse is far enough away that I'm also following this online, having not heard any of the explosions, and everything remains calm. I'm going to be pretty supremely bored by the time everything is back to normal on Saturday, so do email links, stories, and other distractions...

Bored enough to fly back to the States for PACE NSC? Still 34 hours away! (And you'd get to stick them with the largest airfare bill they've ever contemplated.)

At that price, I don't think even the good folks of PACE would believe I'm worth it. Do keep me in the loop, though - I'll be following whatever liveblogs I find during office down-time tomorrow.
