Ah, to be a fly
Specifically, I'd love to be a fly on the wall of Paul Wolfowitz's office when he reads this column about him by David Brooks.

Wolfy has done a lot of good in the world, and he's done so while receiving very little credit, and a lot of the blame for the inevitable shortcomings of his foreign policy vision. The reason I'd love to see his reaction is that I think it'll be a small, self-satisfied smile—and it'll last only a second before he dives back into the work that he so fully dedicates himself to. He's accomplished a lot, and he'll never be satisfied. I have a great amount of respect for people with such strong ideologies, and such a devotion to seeing them come to fruition.

Nothing should be valued above freedom, and Wolfowitz shows that he understands that with every fiber of his being. So, while he'll never see this page, I wish he could know that some of us out here appreciate what he does.
