Hey all... The fateful day has arrived and She Who Watches hits the streets! Now all I have to do is sit back, watch it climb the bestseller charts and let the money roll in... Right?

Lest we lose sight of important things amid all the horrors and failures and times we come up short of our ideals, I think it's good to repeat a quote from "The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara, about the celebrated Col. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, who led the 20th Maine at the battle of Gettysburg, and his views on what the nation truly stood for:

"The faith itself was simple: he believed in the dignity of man. His ancestors were Huguenots, refugees of a chained and bloody Europe. He had learned their stories in the cradle. He had grown up believing in America and the individual and it was a stronger faith than his faith in God. This was the land where no man had to bow. In this place at last a man could stand up free of the past, free of tradition and blood ties and the curse of royalty and become what he wished to become. This was the first place on earth where the man mattered more than the state. True freedom had begun here and it would spread eventually over all the earth. But it had begun here. The fact of slavery upon this incredibly beautiful new clean earth was appalling, but more even than that was the horror of old Europe, the curse of nobility, which the South was transplanting to new soil. They were forming a new aristocracy, a new breed of glittering men, and Chamberlain had come to crush it. But he was fighting for the dignity of man and in that way he was fighting for himself. If men were equal in America, all these former Poles and English and Czechs and blacks, then they were equal everywhere, and there was really no such thing as a foreigner; there were only free men and slaves. And so it was not even patriotism but a new faith. The Frenchman may fight for France, but the American fights for mankind, for freedom; for the people, not the land."

A long day helping to move Franklin High School to unused Marshall HS, too tired to game master, my players are sick or facing deadlines, I'm too warm and can't focus sufficiently to write or watch a very serious documentary about Whitey Bulger, so I think I'm just going to play skylanders and pretend I'm six so I can try the figures I bought for Amber's daughter... Wish me luck...

Proud dad awaiting daughter Devon's graduation from PSU, and also wondering how many times they're going to make the orchestra play "Pomp and Circumstance."

A very tired looking polyphemus moth (Antheraea polyphemus for you latin fetishists) found clinging to the outside of the Arco station near my house. I haven't ever seen one in the wild around these parts, but then again I haven't looked all that hard either. This one looks as if she's seen better days, but they are really a beautiful animal. I say "She" because she looks like she's getting ready to lay some eggs, tired girl...

It just occurred to me that we here in America have, for countless years now, been forced by the liberals, feminists, sjws and their vile allies such as Barack Obama and John Scalzi, to use ARABIC numerals in our daily lives... On our clocks, our computers, on our currency -- right alongside those sacred words "in GOD we trust" mind you -- even in our schools! Every day millions of innocent American schoolchildren across this great land of ours are being taught these foreign numerals, utilized by the same terrorists who want to destroy freedom, impose Sharia law and force us all to adopt their bloodthirsty religion! I propose that we and all other loyal Americans put a stop to this abomination NOW! Write your congressman today, demanding that the use of Arabic numerals CEASE immediately! We demand a return to our traditional, European, Christian tradition, using Roman numerals only! From this day -- June XIII, MMXV -- forward, we say NO to Barack Obama and his liberal, feminist, sjw, politically-correct, terrorist-appeasing agenda! Stop using the numbering system favored by our enemies! SHARE THIS POST IF YOU LOVE FREEDOM!

Crazy-ass conspiracy theory, 15th century style... (especially dedicated to my history nerd buddies)...

Apparently his defense is going to be that it's all about ethics in gaming journalism and returning integrity to the Hugo awards...
