Where’s the Beef?

Yes, the December report has been delayed – by the Major American Retail Holiday (Christmas) and a fractured pelvis (another alcohol-related accident).  Rest assured, it is coming.  One might question why I am dedicating time to events of a century ago while my country is entering a very dangerous moment in its history with the election of Gaius Caligula as President.  Well, I am an historian and this is what I do: look at the past.  Not only is recounting the Great War fun, but I made a commitment to see the war to the end.  As for Trump, I am waiting until he actually takes office and begins to…what?  Given all the contradictory statements issuing from this jackass, I suspect no one has any idea what he plans to do.  I am increasingly convinced, however, that he will damage my country and its position in the world.  I simply cannot see how this ignorant egomaniac can survive even one year in office. cartoon-001
