Just noticed a brilliant typo. In the middle of writing something about corruption in Iraq, I looked back at what I’d written, and read “the International Advisory and Monitoring Bard…”
[that should have been the Board; it’s a very dull, and mostly useless, committee that is supposed to keep track of money being spent in Iraq]
I like the idea of having a bard in charge of auditing. Perhaps we could have press conferences accompanied on the lute? committee meetings with choruses? reports in verse?
