[to all my friends in far flung places]

Topic: Foreign Affairs
One of the chief pleasures of the Internet is its connective power ? its ability to bring distant strangers together with an immediacy unlike that of any other medium.

As such, I want to invite any readers out there from beyond the borders of New York to send me a short piece on what’s going on where you are. Even the simple details of an ordinary day are worthwhile. Did you buy groceries in Indiana? Work late in Lahore? Go out to a bar with your friends in Singapore? Whatever and wherever, and I’ll post them up. Or get us up to date on the politics of the moment in Oregon or Scotland or Lahore. Whatever, from wherever, send it in and I’ll try to post it.
