I was struck by the recent bumper crop of articles complaining about the 
way things have turned out in the Middle East, a state of affairs most 
frequently alluded to as the Arab Winter. I imagine that the authors 
must feel a lot like I did when my thirteenth birthday arrived. When I 
unwrapped a long rectangular box, it turned out to be a badminton set 
and not the BB gun I had been expecting. What a bummer.
