Haven’t been able to keep up with the news.
But, you know. If something big happens? Usually the press will run it for a day or so.
So it surprised me a bit to hear about the elections in Afghanistan. You heard about ‘em probably. All over the news. Happened yesterday, I must have missed it when it first came out (but I heard something about it on the BBC, going to dinner last night). Thought I’d catch up on it today. Had to go to the Ashahi Shimbun. In Japan.
Four years after the end of civil war, long-delayed elections for a legislature were held in Afghanistan…
Huh. Guess they had a civil war. Ended, somehow. Not a lot more about how that might have happened.
(And your point is?)
