My column on Slate, on the U.S. troops withdrawals from Europe. My favorite piece on this subject is, alas, behind a subscription wall on the FT's site. It's the one that mentions Picts and Saxons.

Well, actually I do have one little quibble with that FT article: "Emperor Honorius's decision to withdraw his Roman legions from Britain in 410 AD ... is a distinctly dim historical memory."

Distinctly dim? Clearly fuzzy? Softly booming?
