Hillary Clinton was greeted by Ghalib Iqbal, the Pakistani chief protocol officer, when she arrived for her three-day tour of Pakistan
Clinton visits Pakistan in bid to improve ties U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrived in Pakistan on Wednesday for a three-day visit aimed at quelling rising anti-Americanism and convincing Pakistanis that the United States wants a relationship based on more than counterterrorism. Her first trip here since becoming secretary comes amid a major Pakistani military offensive against insurgent sanctuaries near the Afghanistan border, and a wave of suicide bombings, assassinations and attacks in Pakistani cities. Details of the visit, which was not publicly announced in advance, have been closely held because of security concerns. Although the fight against al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Pakistan and Afghanistan "remains our highest priority," Clinton told reporters aboard the flight to Islamabad, the United States will move beyond a "lopsided" U.S.-Pakistan relationship weighted toward the "security and the counterterrorism agenda." Clinton touted a $7.5 billion, five-year economic aid package authorized by Congress this month and said she would announce a major investment in Pakistan's domestic energy output while here. Clinton praised the Pakistani offensive in South Waziristan and said it was "important for Americans to recognize the high price the Pakistanis are paying" in their fight against extremism, with thousands of military and civilian deaths. President Obama's ongoing strategy deliberations on the war in Afghanistan are focused on maintaining democratic stability in Pakistan and promoting a robust Pakistani military response against insurgents fighting in both countries from sanctuaries on the Pakistani side of the border. While opinion polls indicate that only a minority of Pakistanis support the insurgency here, even fewer approve of the United States and its war policy, which includes regular drone-launched missile attacks on insurgents in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas. U.S. actions and intentions have become a political football here, placing Pakistan's elected government on the defensive against political opposition and military charges that President Asif Ali Zardari is conspiring with the Americans to undermine Pakistani sovereignty. In recent weeks, the Pakistani media have highlighted congressional conditions placed on U.S. economic and military assistance, which many here see as intrusive. Although Clinton will meet with Zardari and other government leaders, the heart of her trip is public relations. She has scheduled talks with political, civil society and tribal leaders and students; town hall meetings; and numerous media appearances in Islamabad and Lahore. In two Pakistani television interviews recorded Monday but embargoed until her arrival, Clinton repeatedly noted that she has Pakistani friends, that she likes to wear a salwar kameez -- the long, loose shirt and trousers that are the Pakistani national dress -- and that her entire family loves Pakistani food. She bemoaned the level of "mutual mistrust" and said that she and Obama "deeply regret that there is misunderstanding and that there may not be the kind of relationship we would like to see." Recalling her visits here as first lady, when she and her daughter, Chelsea, toured religious sites and met with women's groups, Clinton said that "people remember when we try to do that." The "official-to-official, government-to-government" mode, she said, "is not sufficient." The administration must balance its desire to calm U.S.-Pakistan relations with congressional suspicion that U.S. military and economic aid will be wasted or diverted, either toward arming Pakistan for a potential fight against India or toward the insurgents themselves. The new aid package requires specific areas of certification, including whether Pakistan is adequately fighting insurgents, maintaining democratic standards, protecting its nuclear arsenal and hewing to international nonproliferation standards. Clinton said she was confident that the arsenal is safe under Pakistani military protection. But one of the conditions requires the U.S. administration to report on its efforts to gain access to A.Q. Khan, the former head of Pakistan's nuclear weapons program, who Western intelligence has concluded sold weapons plans and components to states such as Iran and North Korea. Pakistan has consistently refused to allow U.S. officials to interview Khan, and the government here recently lifted house arrest restrictions against him. The Washington Post
Flight - for Reynolds Price
This morning as I added newspapers to the fire I learned of the passing of Reynolds Price three weeks ago. I'm feeling tardy, but its important for me to honor this writer who has been so important in my adult life, and from whom I learned so much as a writer. The first and the final paragraphs from 'The Tongues of Angels,' by Reynolds Price It begins...... “I'm as peaceful man as you're likely to meet in America now, but this is about a death I may have caused. Not slowly over time by abuse or meanness but on a certain day and by ignorance, by plain lack of notice. Though it happened thirty-four years ago, and though I can't say it's haunted my mind that many nights lately, I suspect I can draw it out for you, now, clear as this noon. I may need to try.” and ends .... “The thing that seems worth seeing from here is, Raphael Noren watched his life and changed his story in ways that kept it from closing in fear or waste. Didn't he end as a Ghost Dancer still, calling down peace with grace self-possession, alone but calm? How many old men can say as much? How many men like me, who've plumbed the reaches of physical pleasure and heard the word 'love' on many lips? So leave me out, but long as you can, recall his name and some kind of picture against the light – a boy becoming an actual eagle or the generous giver of fire and warmth, laughing his way through mortal trial, denying his fate a few more days.”

In five sharply drawn chapters, Flight Maps charts the ways in which Americans have historically made connections?and missed connections?with nature. Beginning with an extraordinary chapter on the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon and the accompanying belligerent early view of nature’s inexhaustibility, Price then moves on to discuss the Audubon Society’s founding campaign in the 1890s against the extravagant use of stuffed birds to decorate women’s hats. At the heart of the book is an improbable and extremely witty history of the plastic pink flamingo, perhaps the totem of Artifice and Kitsch?nevertheless a potent symbol through which to plumb our troublesome yet powerful visions of nature. From here the story of the affluent Baby-Boomers begins. Through an examination of the phenomenal success of The Nature Company, TV series such as Northern Exposure and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, and the sport-utility vehicle craze, the author ruminates on our very American, very urbanized and suburbanized needs, discontents, and desires for meaningful, yet artificially constructed connections to nature. Witty, at times even whimsical, Flight Maps is also a sophisticated and meditative archaeology of Americans’ very real and uneasy desire to make nature meaningful in their lives.
In Flight Maps, essayist Jennifer Price methodically accounts for the fall of the passenger pigeon, the rise of the pink lawn flamingo, the propagation of nature-themed mall stores, and what all this has to do with modern humanity's relationship to nature. The book began as an award-winning doctoral dissertation at Yale, now repackaged for the mainstream reader. Primarily a smart meditation for baby boomers on why a Volvo can't save your soul and why the name "Nature Company" should seem ironic, Flight Maps is a long, scholarly riff on how nature has evolved into a place apart. We fumble to revisit and recapture it, with everything from Toyota 4Runners to Rainforest Crunch candy.
Price's observations center around how our actions, our beliefs, and--especially--our purchases betray an idealized but conflicted view of nature: it's an undiluted source of "realness," but also a remote and abstract ideal, often mangled by our embrace. Flight Maps traces these attitudes back to 19th-century America, recounting the extinction of passenger pigeons and the faltering first steps of early conservation groups. The book's second and best half, though, covers the present, finding nature's place in the mall. Price's lightly jaded sense of humor, combined with her academic rigor, perfectly skewers the likes of Northern Exposure's $5,000-a-day moose and stress-relief products from the Nature Company's catalog, such as "Pachelbel Canon in D Blended with the Eternal Sound of the Sea--Creates a tranquil atmosphere for quiet meditation.... CD $16.98"). --Paul Hughes
