Chris Floyd Has Finally Stopped This "Vacation" Nonsense

I'm not sure why Chris Floyd felt he could go on vacation with his family, particularly without authorization, but thankfully he's back. If you haven't seen it already, I particularly recommend this cornocopia cornucopia of horrifying information about Afghanistan.

Of the many blog-paths I daily travel, this is one of the most consistently pleasing and informative. It is with no slight trepidation that I must inform you that it is "cornucopia" (from "cornu", horn; and "copia", plenty), not "cornocopia".

Did you ever stop to think that rather than "horn of plenty," I might actually be saying "plenty of corn"? Did you ever think of that!??

Of course I wasn't, but I want to regain the upper hand here by making preposterous, shrill accusations.

A lovely post. I missed him too. His blog and yours are on my very short list of daily stops. May you both keep up the very good work.
