My friend Farrell was doing the talking while sketching on a napkin at the Hamden Townhouse. He drew another rectangle.
It was his TV station.
“They launched the rockets from here.”
He’s in the states on leave, but some of those rockets hit his workplace in Kabul this past weekend. Taliban fighters infiltrated what should have been a protected zone.
It is a scary place. He’s been there 20 months. He flies back tonight and I worry.
Farrell runs a TV station. He is helping bring Afghanistan the kind of political and social discourse they’ve never had.
I wish it was somewhere safer.
