Warning: This piece has very, very little to do with politics.

On a personal note, because this blog is all about blurring the personal and the political, Jesse is leaving the region tonight, after having been my roommate, thought-partner, support-system and best friend for the past year (all of which he will continue to be, except roommate). Jess- I love you so much. Travel safe. Also, now you really have to start guest posting, so as to give Middle East readers real-time updates from the Middle West, word?
