Wait for it

Last weekend I had to pull up a Persian mint that was spreading aggressively, as mints are wont to do. A shame really: the Persians have excellent, subtle flavor, but they're just too invasive.

Just imagine if they got their hands on nuclear weapons.

Seriously, though, everyone should read Steve Coll's piece in the anniversary New Yorker about subcontinental deterrance.

Have you tried potting your mint, seƱor? I know how it spreads, but maybe a pot would work.

Cheers, Max.

Don't worry, that was rhetorical only.

Garden variety humor.

I didn't exterminate it, I moved to a nice shady corner. With no oil reserves.

God, someone stop me.
