Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo
Thanksgiving 2005 will go down as one of my most memorable holidays ever.  Believe it or not, I managed to have a pretty decent Turkey, cranberry sauce and wine in the Congolese capital Kinshasa when I visited Ben.  Ben was living there while on assignment for the US aid agency PSI.  It was such a treat to visit him  and get my first exposure to sub-Saharan Africa.

""Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."




"I want to thank the astronauts who are with us, the courageous spacial entrepreneurs who set such a wonderful example for the young of our country."




"Had we to do it over again, we would look at the consequences of catastrophic success, being so successful so fast that an enemy that should have surrendered or been done in escaped and lived to fight another day."
