Nick Smith, author of I Was Wrong has a busy few days ahead of him:
Sunday, he’ll be on CBC News Sunday‘s segment on “The Art of the Apology.”
Tuesday he will be in DC for The Diane Rehm Show.

Far Eastern Economic Review posted a great piece about our own Bill Overholt’s Asia, America, and the Transformation of Geopolitics. Wondering whether the US is handling things well in the far East? Read on.
Appellation Beer – the site and blog of author and beer lover Stan Hieronymus is reading Grape vs. Grain. He has his own thoughts about the beer/wine debate right up front today, and throughout the blog.
The excellent Good Grape is anticipating Bamforth’s book as well.
