Not unexpectedly, the call came in today requesting I leave immediately to put down the revolution in Kyrgyzstan. I told them (again) that I was much more comfortable toppling unstable regimes than suppressing revolutions. And I reminded them that I really need to mow the lawn and that, yes, I have been their go-to guy numerous times in the past, but I felt someone else would be more appropriate. Oh, and I repeated the thing about the lawn and that seemed to work. So now my lawn is neat and clean, and Kyrgyzstan is a mess. Coincidence? I think not.
