Not Dubuque, Dabiq — DAH-biq

[ by Charles Cameron — hopefully, we live and learn — plus a quiet, personal announcement ]

Apparently he said much the same last night, though I haven’t found the video.

I’m grateful to Will McCants for this clarification, too:

Rubio’s comments last night seem to be good for book sales, too. For McCants:

Oh, and an announcement:
