I get a kick out of this website:
The Spy Fi Archives is an entertaining look at how Hollywood viewed intelligence work during the Cold War and beyond. When President John F. Kennedy revealed his fondness for Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels in the early 1960s, the spy fiction craze began in the United States and internationally. While CIA’s intelligence officers were tight-lipped about their sometimes life-and-death Cold War mission, the movie industry eagerly filled the void with glamour, intrigue, and even humor—with some interesting implications for the real world of intelligence.
The best thing about it: it's a federal government website. Your tax dollars at work!
We need a long-eared Dr. Van Helsing
As you know, every bunny is a prince (or princess) with a thousand enemies. If the enemies catch us, they will kill us -- but first they must catch us. And ever since Frith blessed bunnies' bottoms, the advantage has always been on the side of the long-eared.
Radio host Cristian Opazo reports that 3 yeas ago he saw a pile of dead bunnies that had been killed by an unknown animal in the area. He says, "They had been sucked out. There were no signs of violence except for a hole, like that of a tooth, on the right side of the neck."
Now this is just dandy. Neck-sucking vampires. How do you fight them? A head full of E&E (escape and evasion) algorithms is fine against the living, but how does one out-run the undead?
I can fill my bowl with Holy Water, and can cross the old ears like a crucifix. And of course vampires are nocturnal, while bunnies are crepuscular -- so I got that going for me. Any other suggestions?
Hi You Folks
Apologies for not posting stuff. I haven't had much to say.
Democratic primaries? Not my cup of tea.
Superbowl? Contrived combat is no substitute for the real thing. Like you, I spent Sunday night downloading and watching the good stuff at Grouchymedia
. Can't get enough, if you ask me.
Anyway, I've posted a thing or two. But given the nature of this web log, you know that already.
