The Best, and Worst, in Kabul Military Dining

Andrew SandThe cheese plate at Camp Warehouse.
The premier military dining facility in Kabul. Dashing Frenchmen sport oversize berets. A 30-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower looms over plates of creamy Camembert and smoky Gouda. French chefs serve up authentic French fries, crisp and hot. And fresh sole with a lemon cream sauce in a landlocked country — how did they do that? At this quaint French base, meals end sweetly, with rare deployment joy found in the delicate bûche de Noël. All in all, an exquisite dining experience that brings a bit of Paris to Kabul

A new word for what the mainstream news industry does with all the news that doesn’t fit the liberal view of reality

Paul K. posted this yesterday in the entry, “Notes from the Chicago Intifada.” I thank him for noticing, and providing a proper definition for, the coinage.

Coverupage (kuhv-er-up-ij) n. In journalism, the deliberate omission of vital elements of a story in order to make it politically correct. An ironic variant on “coverage.” (See Auster’s First Law of Majority-Minority Relations in Liberal Society.) First usage: VFR, 13 June 2012.
