'F&I devotees,' Part II:
The F&I devotees
craze keeps on rolling with the Massachusetts Historical Society's William Fowler coming out with his own book on the French and Indian War, "Empires at War."
Already have a copy and I'm looking forward to reading it. As the Amazon description notes, Fowler's tome is slimmer than the now classic "Crucible of War,"
also about the French and Indian War. ... FYI: The society's site
has a cool section on maps from the French and Indian War era.
...Hub Blog's profound pity for Cubs fans:
Sox fans should indeed have sympathy for long-suffering Cubs fans. But the suffering isn't just about their lack of winning. Cubs fans are now being subjected to non-stop manufactured curse babble.
... From a curse-peddling profiteer trying to dump the Babe contract for big bucks: "If a Yankee fans gets this and the Red Sox start slumping, the Curse of the Bambino might be back." ... Oh Christ. They just won't let go.
