Default Re: Worldwise: North Korea Nuclear Test (Jeffrey Lewis & Jacqueline Shire)

For me the worrying change is more in Jeffrey's take. Jackie still seems fairly confident that NoKo won't proliferate. In 2006, Jeffrey was quick to agree and advised keeping a cool head. Today, he's much less sanguine.

When it comes to nuke issues, the combined expertise of Jackie and Jeffrey is, in my mind, the single best place to go for real, non-hysterical intel. Any decline in their net confidence scares me bad.

You can't think that way. The bowtie is a heroic, history-defying element of menswear, virtually the only sign of overt dandyism a modern man can still wear in public. If you let it become the exclusive domain of one political cadre or another, the terrorists win. It's not a coincidence that men's neckwear has been forbidden in Iran since the revolution; a man who owns no bowties might as well just have a closet full of burkas. IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT BRENDAN ?!?!!?
Full Disclosure: I work for BhTV.
