I’m reachable for parts of the morning, but ending the day early. (How to contact me)

Our visit to El Paso and Ciudad Juárez went well logistically and content-wise, though things are so bad there right now, I can’t say that I’m in good spirits this morning.

I’m back in Washington as of 10:30 last night, and in the office for much of the day today. I’m meeting a Colombian scholar in the late morning, and discussing Colombia with some U.S. defense-sector visitors in the afternoon. By about 2:00 I expect to go home: it’s been a full week of travel, and today is my wife’s birthday.
