  1. Let's prevent WW III

    by , 04-10-2024 at 07:26 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    This morning, I saw a reference to Sir Winston Churchill, and that got me remembering him. He deserves a great deal of credit for bringing WW II to an end and some credit for building the postwar World and NATO. As we all recall, he replaces Neville Chamberlain as prime minister of the UK. Chamberlain had helped start the war by trying appease Hitler. Churchill spoke against appeasement, and that got him the PM job after the war had begun. Poland was invaded on October 5, 1939, and Churchill became ...

    I was looking at business stories in Google Business, and I was amazed to see several about Bitcoin increasing in value. While Extraordinary_Popular_Delusions and the Madness of Crowds is the classic study of people getting carried away in investments. There have been plenty of more recent example.

    I was surviving and recovering from an automobile accident, when I received an email from an acquaintance who asked something about the saga. I have never written any sagas, so in my reply I suggested that I might put it in verse. I have never written any sagas, so I looked up the form, and I found this
