Howdy from Kyiv.
Yepper, I'm in Kyiv right now, running a NATO sponsored workshop on environmental protection. At least, originally, it was all about environmental protection, with a focus on security. But guess what? I'm devious. Since environmental protection includes protecting wetlands and New Orleans, I tweaked the focus a bit. Here's a news release. Devious, but hopefully effective.
So I was in a bar last night watching the world cup, and Ukraine was playing Switzerland. Ukraine finally won in a shootout, and the crowd went wild. This bodes well for the workshop, eh?
The flight was from hell. Thanks, Delta. The woman in front of me, who had the slightly relaxed, eastern European approach to underarm hygiene, refused to put down her window shade. As this was a circumpolar flight, I got a whoppping hour and a half of rest. So I'm gonna be in jet lag hell until next week...when it's time to go back to NOLA.
As I'm on a modem and not broadband, I haven't been scouring the blogs for news. This much I do know: The people taking advantage of the hurricane aren't from New Orleans. Fuck the carpetbaggers, the scavengers, the opportunists. On the other hand, a gang of tall black transvestites could only happen in NOLA. HT to Nancy and Bruce.
