"Iraq redux? Obama seeks funds for Pakistan super-embassy" The U.S. is embarking on a $1 billion crash program to expand its diplomatic presence in Pakistan and neighboring Afghanistan, another sign that the Obama administration is making a costly, long-term commitment to war-torn South Asia, U.S. officials said Wednesday. The White House has asked Congress for — and seems likely to receive — $736 million to build a new U.S. embassy in Islamabad, along with permanent housing for U.S. government civilians and new office space in the Pakistani capital. The scale of the projects rivals the giant U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, which was completed last year after construction delays at a cost of $740 million. Senior State Department officials said the expanded diplomatic presence is needed to replace overcrowded, dilapidated and unsafe facilities and to support a "surge" of civilian officials into Afghanistan and Pakistan ordered by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

National Review irritated by Sotomayor being so damned... ethnic Deferring to people's own pronunciation of their names should obviously be our first inclination, but there ought to be limits. Putting the emphasis on the final syllable of Sotomayor is unnatural in English ... This may seem like carping, but it's not. ... one of the areas where conformity is appropriate is how your new countrymen say your name, since that's not something the rest of us can just ignore, unlike what church you go to or what you eat for lunch. And there are basically two options — the newcomer adapts to us, or we adapt to him. And multiculturalism means there's a lot more of the latter going on than there should be.

Tales from the knitters' corner
Here’s a cute yarn…
Is there a nice way to tell people not to ask for anything from me? For the next couple of weeks I don't want to be asked for anything from my friends and colleagues. I am just too busy. if they have something to share, or wish to help me with this stressful time, that's fine. But I don't want to keep having to say no to people. Is there a way to filter incoming calls and texts so I only get them from a whitelist of people instead?

Government seizes land for United 93 memorial The park service said it had teamed up with a group representing the victims' families to work with landowners since before 2005 to acquire the land. "But with few exceptions, these negotiations have been unsuccessful," said the statement. Landowners dispute that negotiations have taken place and say they are disappointed at the turn of events. "We always prefer to get that land from a willing seller. And sometimes you can just not come to an agreement on certain things," park service spokesman Phil Sheridan said.

Got a job... Hello my friends. I am very relieved to tell you that I got a 10 week contract position which means that I don't have to eat ramen all summer. It is arts admin but in dance (I normally work in theatre). So, it will be new and old to me at the same time. I am so relieved, I can't even tell you.
My memory and google-fu are both failing me.
