Trama Idiota

January 13, 2015

So how often have you seen, or read, this? Your stalwart detective protagonist is on the trail of the bad guys, who are maybe serial killers, or anyway are known to kidnap and torture people.  The bad guys then threaten not the detective, who is of course too stalwart to pay attention to such threats, […]

Taking the Bullet

January 10, 2015

I got a bunch of free premium channels for a limited time, and I saw “The Lone Ranger” so you’ll never have to. I don’t know why I keep taking these bullets for you people.  It’s not like I’m paid for this, and it’s not like the bullets are real silver. I thought, as I […]

My Private Idaho

January 3, 2015

This morning’s surprise was to look out the window and see 4-5 inches of fresh powder lying on everything.  My neighbor had hooked up a small sled to his ATV and was pulling his little girl around his yard.   (Safety experts would cringe, but I thought it was lovely, and kinda wanted to jump […]

Dropping the Light Ball

January 2, 2015

There’s a massively important article on the American military in the current Atlantic, which is fortunately readable online.  It’s by James Fallows, who has always seemed to be the military analyst who asks the right questions. Here’s your take-away: If I were writing [a history of our times] now, I would call it Chickenhawk Nation, based on […]
