Nero Fiddles While California Burns

This patriarchal civilization is ending much the same way as Ancient Rome did. I have nothing against Italians. I had a lot of fun with them as I grew up in Brooklyn. And the Mafia guys on the other side of the highway said they wanted respect and I gave it to them because they respected me. What could...

WORLD WAR I ENDS WITH ARMISTICE AGREEMENT: THE UNCENTENNIAL

Today marks the centennial of the armistice agreement that ended World War 1.  At the time, the victorious allies called it "The Great War" or "The War to End All Wars."  That was not to be.  The conflict did, however, turn out to be a significant milestone in the intensity, technology, and diplomacy of war.  It also marked a turning point...

ON THE BRICKS

Gravity is something we all experience. Without it, I don’t think the world or even the universe could continue to exist. We are now again in the space age and we use gravity to power and control space probes sent to the outer planets. Among other things, when it was used, it was called “The Hohmann Transfer” and later...
