I was just checking out Radio Free Europe’s website, and saw that my friend Ron Synovitz is one of the 400 “embedded” reporters on the Iraq-Kuwait border. He’s with the 3rd Infantry, and if you check out the RFE/RL website (http://www.rferl.org) you’ll see his articles. (http://www.rferl.org/nca/features/2003/03/17032003170529.asp)
This is all getting pretty weird.
The other thing that’s amazing about Ron is his absolutely _encyclopedic_ knowledge of the Beatles. For example, he once gave me the “Peter Sellers Tape” of the White Album – named because it was an early mix given to Peter Sellers by George Harrison.
My thoughts are with Ron tonight.
