I should be reachable during the afternoon hours. (How to contact me)

I’m back from vacation and jumping back in to work. Over the next few weeks, my daughter will be at a day camp farther from here. The longer commute has changed my schedule around a bit. I won’t post news clips to this site until later in the day. Instead, I’m devoting the early morning hours to writing.

As a result, earlier today I wrote most of an upcoming analysis of the Trump administration’s $100m request to hire more Border Patrol agents. Now I’m in the office, where I’ve got a staff meeting and a pile of administrative things to attend to. During the afternoon I’ll post a news update and add a bunch of clips to my defense oversight database.
