THINKING ABOUT DEATH: If Amir Taheri is right (and Taheri is surely in the ballpark), Saddam's war plan involves encouraging lots of horror in Iraq. I was thinking today about all that death, and whether it will be worth it to dislodge from power the man who seeks to unleash it. I still, reluctantly, think it will be.

Then death came closer. I got an email from a college buddy about the death this weekend, in an accident, of a friend of ours, a guy I knew very well, who was far too young. Words fail me.

Jeremy Shannon, Rest in Peace.
