The Poet: Rod McKuen, "A Cat Named Sloopy"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 59 minutes ago
*"A Cat Named Sloopy"* "For awhile the only earth that Sloopy knew was in her sandbox. Two rooms were her domain. Every night she'd sit in the window among the avocado plants waiting for me to come home, my arms full of canned liver and love. We'd talk into the night then, contented, but missing something. She the earth she never knew, me the hills I ran while growing bent. Sloopy should have been a cowboy's cat, with prairies to run, not linoleum, and real-live catnip mice, no one to depend on but herself. I never told her, but in my mind I was a midnight cowboy even then. R... more »

Can Far Right GOP Crackpot Joe Gale Take Down Pat Meehan In A PA-07 Primary?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
*Pennsylvania Republicans Gale and Meeham* Pat Meehan is a pretty ho-hum Republican member of Congress-- someone I'd call a back-bencher or, in a feistier mood, a knee-jerk GOP zombie. He's cautious not to freak out independent voters in his swingy ultra-gerrymandered suburban district outside of Philly, with pieces of Delaware, Montgomery, Chester, Berks, and Lancaster counties. Obama beat McCain there and then Romney narrowly bested Obama 50-49%. Last year, the district swung back towards the Democrats as Hillary beat Trump 49.3% to 47.0%.

Kyle Mizokami at The National Interest - 3 hours ago
*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, Asia* And millions upon millions would die. India and Pakistan have been rivals since 1947, when the two countries were born from the dissolution of the British Raj in India. The two countries have gone to war four times since then, in 1947, 1965, 1974 and 1999, and been on the brink of war as recently as 2008. The last war, the 1999 Kargil War, was particularly dangerous as both countries were avowed nuclear powers. If a war on the subcontinent went nuclear, how bad could it get?

Warfare History Network at The National Interest - 3 hours ago
*Warfare History Network* *History, * America wanted a giant flying boat; Howard Hughes made it. The Time magazine article was titled “It Flies!” It was a note of triumph and vindication, but also an epitaph, of an aircraft that was five years in the making—the “Spruce Goose,” a plane that should not have existed. Many things were against it, even, to a certain degree, its creator. The week of May 4-10, 1942, saw the loss of 300,000 deadweight tons of Allied shipping to German U-boats, loss rates that were twice new ship launches.

How Kosovo Poisoned America's Relationship with Russia

*Ted Galen Carpenter* *Security, Europe* [image: F-117 Nighthawk. Wikimedia Commons/Public domain] The Kosovo intervention set terrible precedents that have come back to haunt the West. Washington, DC perpetuated and deepened its Balkan blunder a few years after the Bosnia intervention when it intervened in Kosovo. Civil strife in Serbia’s restless, predominantly Albanian province, simmered and then flared in the mid-and late-1990s. This time, Washington didn’t even make a gesture of deferring to the leading European states, but took the policy lead early on. Ultimately, the Unit... more »
