Al Qaeda: "We hate and kill everything you stand for - join us!"

They can issue ultimatums, but they can't make me buy their product.  Not yet, anyway.

How The Big Three can make the public accept a bailout: by turning warm and fuzzy.

Last Son of Krypton
by Elliot S! Maggin, online.  I bought this book when I was in the sixth grade, read it, loved it.

Superman had witnessed the deaths of living creatures in conditions beyond imagination, of natural balances beyond counting, of several stars, of two pairs of parents, of his childhood and of the world of his birth.

He was terrified into heroism by the possibility of his own death.

Logistics from 'How to Make War' by James Dunnigan.

  • Mechanized units - pretty much any Western army - require 150 - 500 pounds of supply per day per man.
  • Air units require 1,000 pounds of supply per day per man.
  • 3/4 of that weight is ammunition and fuel.
