read simon, be smarter.
I can confidently state that Simon's analytical ability and familiarity with the subject material is equal to emptywheel and eriposte. and not that it means anything particularly in our universe, but simon also literally handled nukes on fighter planes in the mid east. even more impressively, he can quote the Butler report at a hundred paces - and can challenge, learn from, and teach emptywheel. they've had a number of interesting, useful conversations here at my place.
way back in the yearly lukery days, i wrote:

Simon is now blogging at JUDITH MILLER AND DR DAVID KELLY AND THE MISSING IRAQI WMD - I'm not sure whether he is planning on doing some general blogging like i do or if he has a specific interest in mind.
regardless, i was wrong when i wrote:

go learn stuff.
