  Aren't smart people grand?
Those of you who read this blog (hi mom) will recall last week's post on how peace in Northern Ireland could teach some lessons to other regions in crisis.

Of course, I had no idea what those lessons might be.

Fortunately, my historical and prescriptive shortcomings are more than compensated for by some really smart folks.

Rami G. Khouri, editor of the Beirut Daily Star weighs in with his thoughts, and some fairly prescient advice for dealing with some of the more destructive problems in the Middle East. Here's a sample:

Yet, occupation, subjugation, resistance, and terror are ending in Northern Ireland. This suggests—once again—that terror and political violence are sparked by historical realities, and they can be stopped by other acts of sensible history and wise diplomacy.

Sounds good to me.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
