The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

In Flanders Fields

For John, BLUFI care partly because I got to recite this poem before the whole Robert A Millikan High School student body, as a student.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From The Reform Club, by Mr Seth Barrett Tillman, 13 January 2017.

Here is the lede:

John McCrae’s Flanders Fields is iconic.  No more need be said.  Unfortunately, its meaning has been distorted by the most popular voice and instrumental accompaniment.  This new reading of the poem has transformed Flanders Fields’ meaning.  My guess is that this metamorphosis was unintentional, but one and all should work to recover the original public meaning.
Well worth the read.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
