"Tattoo," my memoir, has little chance of wide readership. It has a quotation from the Iliad in it.

Prepare for mirth, for mirth becomes a feast. Now with bacon, because bacon goes great with everything, even an English lesson.

I see the problem if you are not hitting the NYT best seller lists. More likely readership is limited due to your liberal use of polysyllabics. In fact, you just strung 15 of them together six times in only one sentence.

Thank sfor giving this funny little three piggy ditty its own heading. A few moments of not being talked down to. plus celebrating our once shared culture.

Angry Democrat women are already out, pre-emptively scolding against any negative word choices describing their lovely, moderate, team-building VP choice. Calling Harris a craven opportunist I suspect is now verboten., though it is neither sexist nor racist. It just is.

Who is the wolf presently? Democrats, communists, antifa?

I recall, you mentioned Tatoo earlier. A couple of years ago, it feels. It took that long to get it through the respective national interest filters?

It took eight months. "Tattoo" not Tatoo. Which of these categories describes you? Ah, Wall Township, a limousine lefty.

An entertaining retelling of an old fable. The excellent punchline finesses the traditional moral lesson: When the wolf is at the door, fine speaking matters not a jot. What matters is who is willing and able to offer protection.

I am always puzzled by the people from countries who have previously been sheltered by this third little pig who say they cannot wait for his house to come down. One wonders where they expect to shelter the next time the wolf (or bear, or dragon) is at the door. I see no evidence of sturdy houses being built in Europe, for instance.

Eight months? Feels longer. It's available now?

With the tattoo link above inviting help so the respective people in charge of clearing have less work to do? ...

Sir, I have the highest respect for you and your work. But maybe you can explain to us what happened to US national interest and the US intelligence during the last couple, maybe triple of decades???

Considering all the diverse agencies including the FBI. MIA is still unharmed by liberal nativity?

It was ten years in the writing. It is not available now. It was cleared by; CIA, DoD, DIA, NSA, NSC, SOCOM and the Army. Security clearance was final a month ago. I am now dealing with production of the book by the publisher. "With the tattoo link above inviting help so the respective people in charge of clearing have less work to do?" You are a real snot. But, since you are from NJ, it is to be expected. Go away idiot!

"MIA is still unharmed by liberal nativity?" No idea what that means. Were you trying to write 'DIA is still unharmed by liberal naivete?' I left government employ in 1994. You should ask the people you give money to what happened to our foreign policy.

Frankly, Miss Scarlett, "Tattoo" is not ink

Speaking of pigs, what about this?

American Made - indeed!

Unfortunately American swine (ie politicians) are no longer content building sturdy homes made of brick as it is much easier filling the gaping maw beneath their snouts feeding at the public trough while wallowing in the muck of the pigsty known as Washington DC.

Its oink, oink, oink all the way to the bank - nary a wolf to be found.

Bold text below was borrowed from the Pink Floyd song Pigs (Three Different Ones) from their album Animals:

Pig stain on your fat chin.

Ha, ha, charade you are.

different clue

This post brought two things to mind. Unfortunately, covid lockdowns have so much restricted my computer face-time access that I could only now circle back to try offering them here.

The first one I can't even find on line any more. A long brute force search might find
it. It was a you tube video by a completely different Pat Lang about what English might have been like and stayed like if there had not been a Norman Conquest and its Franco-Latin re-engineering of the language. He called what the language "would have been" by the name "Anglish". It sounds very Hobbitishly MidLearthean. I like better the English we have. ( The presenter's Shakespeareanicity brought it to mind.)

The other is about some still-made-in-America tools with "pig" in their name. Red Pig Garden Tools. I may get their biggest and littlest hand furrowers.
