I’ve always–well, the last few, post-Bush years that is–thought of John Kerry as our country’s unofficial Envoy. He yields a gravitas on the diplomatic stage that shouldn’t be denigrated.(e.g. convinced Karzai to runoff elections; quell Pakistani anger post Bin Laden kill, etc.) I was surprised to have him come to mind as I watched the Common Loons dive, but the brain is a great connector.

YOU take a lesson.
