An early American congressman “suggested confining diplomats on their return from assignments, “as we quarantine foreign rags through fear of cholera.”

Glad home leave isn’t like that now! Looking forward to family, friends, and food this summer!

This quote from “War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence” by Ronan Farrow (aff) — my current Kindle read.  Highly recommended.
