I just wanted everyone to know, I haven’t forgotten about y’all. I’m working up a post for Sunday. Whether you call it Armistice Day, Veterans’ Day, or Remembrance Day, please stop by. As Lt. Colonel, later Lt. General, Harold G. “Hal” Moore once said, “Hate war but love the warrior”. There will be plenty of the latter, trust me.
I’ve been pondering the end of an era in China. Every ten years, the Communist Party changes some of the people in various positions of power. And this year brings a particularly significant shift in positions. We, here in the west, will lose a personage that granted a vast gift to us all. For when the music is over, and all the chairs have been switched, we will no longer be able to say:
“What’s the name of the President of China?” “Hu.” “The fellow who runs China.” “Hu.” “You know about foreign politics?” “Yeah!” “Then who’s the guy running China?” “Exactly!” 😀 *
With sincerest apologies to Abbott and Costello. See ya Sunday!
