I shall begin this Sunday on a sombre note. From Jack London's 1906 poem "The Way of War", a synopsis of warfare from the beginnings of mankind into the future. Follow the link for the full text.

Future man - ah! who can say? -
May blow to smithereens our earth;
In the course of warrior play
Fling death across the heavens' girth.

Future man may hurl the stars,
Leash the comets, o'er-ride space,
Sear the universe with scars,
In the fight 'twixt race and race.
