Loon

not fallen off face of planet ..

Uh ... I guess I've not posted much here of late ... the problem being that it is Spring Break and I have "entertainment duties" for a 7 and 3 year old pretty much all week. I did not even get to my computer yesterday until about midnight. Life goes back to normal on Monday.

Another Victor Davis Hanson gem ...

Thanks to johncwright for the link ...

"There quite literally has never been a single nation that has exercised such colossal military force to change almost instantly the status quo, and used it under the auspices of a consensual government to free — Grenada, Panama, Serbia, Afghanistan, and Iraq — rather than to enslave peoples. How long it will last, we do not know, but we should at least realize that we are living in one of the most anomalous periods in recorded history."
