Greg Djerejian of The Belgravia Dispatch recently shared a cab with Tom Friedman of the NYT. As you may be aware, you can't read Friedman's columns on the NYT site anymore, unless you're willing to pony up $50/year to join "TimeSelect", which I am not as a matter of principle.
My loss, as far as Friedman goes. Djerejian reprinted a bit of a Friedman column on the next steps in Iraq following the election. As always, it's rational, positive, and well-written.
I miss that guy. Not $50-miss-him, but I do miss him.
