If I had more time,

by Nathan Hamm on 12/12/2003

If I had more time, I’d read this (hat tip to Andrew Sullivan).
I took a quick glance at it and quickly noticed that the borders are
defined by counties. I grew up in a “sagebrush” part of Southern
Oregon, and the description for the area is pretty good. At the same
time, there’s definitely an “Upper Coasts” bleed into the area. Maybe
its growing up in these borderlands that give me strange political
tendencies.
Crisisweb’s Georgia analysis is interesting. I never really thought about it this ways:

Georgia, in other words, is still pre-conflict, not
post-conflict, and exceptional international action is required to
contain the potential for chaos.

Pre-conflict might not be the right word for it, but Georgia definitely isn’t post-conflict.
