A Cautionary Tale
I got hold of a copy of the October edition of the New York Review of Books the other day, because I wanted a printed version of the article by Geoffrey Wheatcroft on the Chilcot Report, concerning the British Government's involvement in the Iraq War. It makes for painful but necessary reading. I'd already seen the article on-line but getting hold of the print version seemed important somehow. In a world in which we're deluged with information it's wise to develop a sense of how we can get to know of the messes we create and exactly how we came to concoct them.
