I’ve recently had some comments posted from a 13 year old in Georgia. I welcome all my younger readers and encourage them to feel free to leave comments! (I don’t know why, but I’d always assumed that my readers were slightly older.)

Here is a post suitable for all ages:

Pirates and Emporers is a pitch-perfect send-up of the Schoolhouse Rock” musical civics cartoons of the 1970s — easily the most-compelling educational materials aired on US TV — in which the dark history of US international policy (funding terrorists, arming atrocity-mongers) is set to jaunty music and simple animation.
