Salon has a piece pondering the desire folks have for attention, building on the recent balloon boy hoax.
But attention doesn’t just represent the filling of a hole in our love-starved hearts. It’s money.
I just thought to mention this before I appear on CTV Montreal on their noon news program again to talk more about Afghanistan. I know I am a media whore. Glad to know I am not alone!

I should ponder the responsibilities of academics who appear on TV, radio and elsewhere as "experts." Perhaps later.
