The Guns of April:
The booming sound of guns can be heard from afar. It's begun. First field report: Favorable.
But it’s going to be a long campaign.
One other favorable development: Hub Blog’s Manhattan-based WMD spy, who wisely didn’t chomp too hard on the cyanide tablet during those terrible post-Grady Decision moments, is in position. But, perhaps shaken by last fall’s ‘setback,’ he senses something:
“WMD spy getting geared up. I feel it’s sort of the same as the democrats vs Bush. I am optimistic but have an underlying feeling of dread. I suppose their seasons are on the same schedule, praying for an October surprise.” ‘Arrived in Boston as a stowaway,’ Part II: But, but, but
... but didn’t the FBI say everything was under control concerning possible al-Qaeda stowaways on LNG tankers? What does he mean by saying the FBI’s pre-9/11 anti-terrorism intelligence was “not as good as it could have been”? .... Never mind. Nothing here. Move on. ‘American Jezebel’:
Sounds like an interesting book about Anne Hutchinson and Puritanical Boston.
I heard the author, Eve LaPlante, recently talking about the book on NPR. The assertion that Hutchinson is a ‘classic feminist hero’ is, sadly, typical and a somewhat annoying politically correct intrusion, considering her own father had the same rebellious nature and history in England. But the book, especially its account of Hutchinson’s trial, sounds like one Hub Blog will pick up one of these days.
