I believe Puck is pondering the gravity of my recent release,
A Feast of Famine.
Either that, or he's recovering from barking at the legions of leaf blowers at our neighbors' house this morning.

Recipe for a disaster:
A distant land beset by violence and starvation
A U.S. president facing reelection, in need of an image makeover
Combine and stir
Famine ravages war-torn, anarchic Bulimia. International humanitarian organizations want to help, but the country’s rival gangs and militias have brought aid to a halt, targeting relief operations with violence and extortion while tens of thousands starve. Resolute action to secure humanitarian operations is needed, and the United States decides to take the lead. Yet good intentions are no match for cynical political calculations, interagency rivalries, bureaucratic ambitions and escalating incompetence. Humanitarian volunteers, diplomats, military personnel and a beleaguered Department of State analyst face one disaster after another in this farcical and tragic story of problems that belie solution.
