Unfortunately, Blogger chose yesterday to eat all the HTML below the Viktor Bout index post in the sidebar. I've just finished restoring it, but unfortunately the blogroll is currently restored to a previous state and quite a lot of links have gone. This will be restored in the next couple of days. It's nothing personal.
Meanwhile, I advise everyone to watch Talkingpointsmemo.com like a hawk as Josh just said that a major revelation regarding "Russian arms dealers" and Republican politico Tom DeLay is in the offing. I'm going to guess this means our friends in the east, in some form or other.
