Wracked with angst over the fate of our beloved and horribly misgoverned Republic, the DiploMad returns to do battle on the world wide web, swearing death to political correctness, and pulling no punches.
I waited a couple of days before commenting on the Istanbul airport atrocity to see if this time our putative "leaders" reacted in...
Gone fishing ...?
Hurray! He yet lives!
Oh good. I was hoping you had not quit blogging.--Alicia
Excellent news, sir. I've been checking in daily, hoping but prepared for disappointment. Today is a good day. Cheers.
Yay! You're not dead!
Really glad to hear you will return.Hope all is well.
I, too, am relieved and promise to be good. These are extreme strange diplomatic times and we need all the help available. Hope all is well.
Hope you come loaded for bear. Also, is there any way you can repost your articles from the original DiploMad? Not only were they amusing, they are historically significant. They documented the total ineptitude of the UN at the ground level.
So from July 16 through Sept. 1st you were being held incommunicado in a Turkish prison, or being waterboarded in Gitmo, or what? Earth to Diplomad > if you want a blog audience ya gotta keep that audience UPDATED a tad more often than once every 45 freakin' days, dude. I'm just sayin' ... illness, death in the family, dog ate your laptop, whatever ... 45+ days of radio silence spells doom in the blogosphere.
I think working for the State Department is enough to cut him some slack. I'm willing to bet he is the only blogger that has this kind of job, or one of the very few who does if he isn't alone.
Pleased to see you back, Diplomad. I have a few thoughts at unclecephas.blogspot.com
