As I was away during most of October in Africa and Europe, I had totally missed the sad news that one of my blog friends from years ago had a passed away. It was sad to learn that Norm Geras is no longer with us. He was one of the pioneering blogging giants who not only gained a lot of notoriety during the Iraq War - years that coincided with blogging going mainstream - but also because of his effort to profile as many of the bloggers of the first few hours as possible. He profiled me here in early 2006. Thanks Norm and we will never forget you.
This is my weblog and as opposed to the earlier one I ran years ago, this is not one about just politics and markets.
