Happy End of Summer!
I’m celebrating Labor Day this year by making it the first day of my summer vacation which, if I’m going to take one, I need to get cracking, don’t I?
|Wake me when the next war|
Catch you after the equinox. Hopefully we won’t have started a fourth war by then. Well, a fifth war, if you count Yemen as being a war already. Which it is, when you get right down to it. Then again, we’re also at war in Somalia, the Philippines, Nigeria and Syria. So here’s hoping we’re don’t start a how ever many-eth war it would be if we start a new one before fall officially starts.
And what would the rush be? It’s not like we need new wars to replace the ones we already have. Out withdrawal “deadlines” for Iraq and the Bananastans are more fictional than Sergeant Fury and His Howling Commandos, though not nearly so well written, drawn or inked.
