“Dignity has no price, when someone starts making small concessions, in the end, life loses all meaning.”  José Saramago

My Boy Is Seven and Someone Took His BMX Bike

Someone took my boy's "Roadmaster" BMX bike. It is glossy black, with green handle grips, and has a black chain guard. We can't remember if we wiped out all of the purple letters on the old chain guard or left some on, so there may still be some purple letters left.

The value of the bike is really derived from the effort he took in redecorating it. He actually worked on removing the old grips himself.

The story of a British intelligence agent who rigged an election, installed a king loyal to the British, drew new borders—and gave us today’s ungovernable country: Iraq.

Quote: “It was a hundred years ago, a few months before the outbreak of World War I. Baghdad was under a regime loyal to the Ottoman Turks. The Turkish authorities in Constantinople had reluctantly given the persistent woman permission to embark on her desert odyssey, believing her to be an archaeologist and Arab scholar, as well as being a species of lunatic English explorer that they had seen before.
