Greetings Loyal Readers:
Once again we are away from Kabul on one of the fabulous R&R vacations they provide us suffering civilians. And once again, we failed to get anything ready for posting while we are away. We're currently posting from a friend's computer in Shanghai (and note that the Chinese government has blocked its people's access to the Holla, perhaps recognizing our steady progress toward world domination. The 21st century may belong to China but the early smart money is on the Holla in the 22nd.) We may have some down time during which we'll post from the road. But just as likely, you'll have to manage without regular Holla updates until the 24th. Don't cry, it will be here before you know it!
