Whichever one reads Kaplan the most? RT @stavridisj: Robert Kaplan is doing #fletcherreads now question most dangerous nation?No, I am not a fan of Robert Kaplan's work (see here or here or here).

Oh wait, speaking of Kaplan, I forgot to mention anywhere this week my encounter with someone with regressive views of ethnicity and conflict. I was part of a panel at the University of Ottawa on the defence policies of the Conservative government of Canada. Fun stuff! A guy in the front row asked us about the great threat posed to Canada by the increased Mexicanization of the U.S. and the likely civil war. I scoffed and scorned as I linked him with Sam Huntington. And he left. Whoops.
Anyhow, I hope this snark helps kick start my writing engines, as book promotion requires more than just showing up in fun places.
