The most charitable explanation is one offered by a Canadian I know with deep diplomatic expertise in the Middle East.

He posited that the government of Canada, lacking the raw power of Washington — which ensured that American citizens facing charges were quietly allowed to leave Egypt — has perhaps been conducting back-channel talks with the Egyptians, and has secured some sort of face-saving deal to free Fahmy once the uproar has died down.

The other possibility my diplomatic acquaintance suggested was less palatable: that Canada’s government, like the far-right American politicians who cheered as the Egyptian generals grabbed power, has concluded that military oppression is greatly preferable to any governance by Islamic fundamentalists, even elected ones, and the regime’s excesses are the price to be paid.

But I was able to see my ratings from the students at the end of each semester and believe they were extraordinarily high compared to the average.

More than a year later I’m still proud of this.

I really am not going to mind being bald. I’m very comfortable with that.

It is the process of BECOMING bald that is awkward.  

So many kind-of-shitty photos of myself these days.

GIFs are too big

Besides the total insanity that is that article- the gifs at the bottom are too much. GIFs have jumped the shark and lost all signal to the noise ration when articles are using five as “emotional punctuation.”
