I've been recovering from the flu. (Missed only my third speech in 28 years last week.) Hence posting has lagged—other than the "SF flap." So I missed my traditional Veterans Day message. Simply put, "Thanks!"
Incredible sacrifices in Iraq notwithstanding, I dedicate this Post to the often-forgotten Korean War veterans and Viet vets. To the latter I offer the soldier-to-soldier salutation: "Welcome home!"
(San Francisco has veterans, which I know will surprise some. One such SF Vietnam vet is pictured above on Veterans Day 2006.)

Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
