Greetings to all the readers from Hugh Hewitt's blog, and thanks again to Hugh for the link both from his blog as well as from the article he wrote for Townhall.com (I'll try not to let it go to my head -- but the fact that he got my last name wrong in the article will help with that).
*Update (08-24-06: 6:39 AM): someone corrected the mistake. Thanks!
If you're linking in from his article, I'd like to point out that I respectfully disagree with Hugh about the reasons Abizaid feels America is ignoring the war, but I think we would agree on most other issues. I'm a huge fan of Hugh's and listen to his show every day.
I will be off the grid for the next five days on a trip to Eagle Crest for our family summer vacation. During that time, there is an outside chance my friend and former boss Lt. Col. Tom Eisiminger will guest-blog for me (he's really busy with personal stuff at the moment, but check in anyway just in case).
I will be back on Tuesday. Also, shortly after I return, I will be heading to Fort Knox for some training, and get this ... I'm flying United Airlines on the fifth-year anniversary of September 11th to get there! Your prayers are welcome, although I have to admit I almost hope someone does try and take over the airplane I'm in. My wife will smack me if she reads this, but it's true -- I may be closing in on middle-age, but I'll never be too old to kick some ass ('scuse my French) when my back's against the wall.
Cheers to all and thanks for visiting.
