Good night and veel geluk

The New Yorker sent an email to say that the lineup had changed and Ayaan Hirsi Ali could no longer participate in tonight's scheduled event. I'd seen the article saying that she'd had to return this week to Holland (as those icky people call it) and wondered. Ticketmaster refunded my purchase. Martin Amis and Ian Buruma are discussing now. I had a ticket for the conversation on Iraq with George Packer, too, but reversed the times, so when I thought Ali was cancelled, settled in for another hour before I realized. It was an fabulous double bill. I am suffering the loss, and myself as the loser.
