What does it mean to me Al Franken?

I have been home less than a month and I have already stopped caring about the finer points of UN resolutions and the Turkish parliament. I used to revel in the esoteric info. Now it all seems so far away. No wonder no one in Los Angeles cares about the rest of the world. Perhaps I was wrong to think I couldn't be happy working at a small newspaper covering school boards or something. International Schminternational. In a few more days I won't remember any of the capitals or presidents of the Central Asian countries. Nursultan Nazarbayev. Astana/Almaty. Islam Karimov. Tashkent. Askar Akayev. Bishkek. Nope, still got it.
