Politics Is War By Other Means

WAR IS A MERE CONTINUATION OF POLICY BY OTHER MEANS. Good old Clausewitz. Best book on war ever written. (The Art of War was about something else.) But the 21st century has reversed his famous line.

Not Just Wrong–Evil

Today was a particularly busy day for me. I had a series of meetings. Like every hour, another meeting. From 9:00 on. I saw the text from my wife.  I didn’t have time to click on a video. I was in a room full of people. Important business. Major client and all that. And I…

St. Louis Uber Nada

About this time, a variety of railroads began trying to build their own networks to the West, but the St. Louis city government refused to grant the permits required for constructing railroad bridges across the river at their location, even though St. Louis was the logical choice and would have been a perfect place for…
