    questioned the propriety of welcome home parades for returning soldiers.  I was quite surprised by that, but I do listen to Ms Maddow daily, so I guess I'm inside her own sphere of influence.  And I am so acutely aware of the botch we made of that at the end of the war in Vietnam.

    I'm reading Drift now.  Nothing to say about that yet.

    For a fictional approach to the necessity for defense vs the supremacy of an eternal offensive stance, see practically anything by the greatly missed Octavia Butler.

    A hundred and fifty or so years after the Civil War is probably the soonest we could address these questions.

    The losses were too great, the harm too deep.
