At 5:45 today, I woke from a nightmare that 100,000 Iraqis, fleeing our bombs, had been herded into an Iranian refugee camp, and they all needed to pee. There wasn’t room for them all in the camp, but those who overflowed were easily identified because they were Arabic speakers. I was supposed to help them. I don’t speak Arabic. I woke. I needed to pee. I drifted back into the dream, seeing the massing hordes from above, as if from a departing helicopter, and then gave in to the inevitability of waking.
