Okay, so we only made it through three e-mails last time. I have 61 in my inbox. Fortunately, I don’t have to do all of them — just the oldest and worth saving.
An item entitled “Watch ‘Charlie Rose – An hour with General David Petraeus’” I sent myself through Google Reader on 10 SEP 2007 at 8:18 AM. I think the title is self-explanatory. The reason I want to watch it — and still save it? Because I love me some Petraeus. Link still works. Delete.
Next is a really old e-mail (17 OCT 2007 at 3:25 PM) with a link to The Blakes’ (a band) Myspace page. I’m deleting without looking further. Can’t remember why I saved it. If anyone knows if they’re any good, let me know and I’ll look into ‘em this time around.
22 OCT 2007 at 11:12 AM: Another Google Reader e-mail with a link to theMother Jones’ issue focusing on leaving Iraq. The e-mail itself contains an interview with T.X. Hammes that was posted on the Kings of War blog, written by various faculty and research students of the Department of War Studies, King’s College London. The link still works.
Okay, I’m going to stop here again for a while. Maybe I’ll aim for getting rid of three old e-mails per post.
Does anyone else find random stuff on the Web, e-mail it to themselves and then let it sit there lingering forever?
