More wisdom from the fellow who knows more about Pakistan than I do (well, one of many):
Go read it. We should be paying more attention to this crisis, and TKL has got a front-row view.
Update: Whoops. I mistakenly implied that TKL currently resides in India; he doesn’t: according to his bio, he’s living “in Chicago making a living as a born-again software designer…[and is] awed by the rites of spring and fall”. My bad.
