To clarify: the title is excerpted from Act 1 of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost. The full quote goes:
"Light, seeking light, doth light of light beguile;
So ere you find where light in darkness lies,
Your light grows dark by losing of your eyes."
It's a warning against spending too much of your life in scholarly pursuits.

Totten on Georgia
Michael Totten reports from Georgia. Apparently neither the Georgians nor the Russians are confused about what is going on. Not like we in the West, who are squabbling endlessly over the meaning of what is happening.
