Just Two Months Early For Independence Day

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2004 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Two, two, two articles in today's Salon feature India or Indian-Americans. Philip Robertson, Salon's constantly-in-danger Iraq correspondent, profiles Sudip Bose, who is basically the Army's Dr. Bashir. (If only we had Sisko and Kira running this station, instead of Section 31.) And Charles Taylor (not the dictator) (I think) adores some epic cheese Hindi flick, noting in passing that Shahrukh Khan (whom you may recall from every Hindi movie since 1998) "sometimes seems the offspring of John Stamos and Jerry Lewis."
