The 'Great' War

Field gunners loading shrapnel shells I suppose I should have posted this yesterday, but I was having too mellow a day off to dip my head into thoughts of war. Yesterday was Veteran's Day, which used to be called Armistice Day. Yesterday (at 11 a.m., to be exact—the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month) marked the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. World War One—called "The Great [i.e., large] War" until there was an even greater one—was perhaps the most pointless catastr...

Happy Fourth

TOP is takin' a coupla days off for the firecracker holiday. Gone fishin', back Friday. I'd admit that I'm one of those weirdos who think we in the USA have been better off if we'd just stuck it out as part of Great Britain. The only thing about that is, if we had stayed together as one country, you know full well that what is now the United Kingdom would have rebelled by now and gone back to being independent. The only likely difference is that we probably wouldn't have burned down Buckingham ...

That’s all about to change...For the past couple of decades, the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland has been shrinking, not in length but in density, all the apparatus of othering – customs posts, identity checks, soldiers – replaced by simple roadside reminders (blink and you’ll miss them) that speed limits are now in kilometres instead of miles.

The United Nations will swear in António Guterres as its ninth secretary-general on Dec. 12, when the organization will be only weeks away from the inauguration of Donald Trump and the potentially most threatening, hostile political opposition to the UN ever assembled in Washington, D.C. The UN will have to be prepared to respond and defend its record. Most likely, it will also have to fend off a wave of "fake news" and bogus sites designed to weaken public support in the United States and aroun...

Just a tip that you might want to block out a little time to go through some of them. And gracias to those who chimed in. Wednesday's "Open Mike" posts got almost as much traffic as the #1 post of the past five or six weeks, which was the political post on the day after the election. (Best joke I've heard on that score: Great Britain has dropped the "Great" in its name and ...
