In-argh-uration Day

This tattoo, and the feeling of having your body pierced thousands of times by electric needles, seem appropriate today. 

The characters say “unpredictable change is the only thing that lasts forever.” Unless somebody was duped… for all I know it says something like “foolish tourist.”

Let’s fervently hope this shoulder has it right, that the all-too-predictable changes swirling around today’s ceremony in Washington don’t come true.

  1. When deployed in ’03, I had two Army desert boonie caps embroidered in Arabic with my name. Neither looks like the other leading me to believe one says, “Fuck you, Yankee!” and the other, “Imperialist Bastard!” Oh well, … Allahu Akbar!
