Coup D’Etat

I may have a new super hero to enjoy reading about.  Although he is fictional author Ben Coes makes a good case to put him close to the company of Gabriele Allon, Alex Hawke, Scot Harvath, and Mitch Rapp.  In Coup d’Etat evil again rears its ugly head in the Middle East as tensions broil between India and Pakistan.  Mix in two countries that don’t like each other, historic tensions, nuclear weapons, terrorists, jihadists, and loads of money and you just might get a coup.  Coes’ hero is ex-black ops guy who really wants to be off the grid.  Dewey Andreas gets pulled back in to take on a near-suicidal mission.

Parse-imony – Drug Deaths

In “Parse-imony” I break down current news stories with my pithy, running commentary…

First the headline:

DEA seizes key execution drug in Ga.

ATLANTA – The Drug Enforcement Administration confirmed Tuesday that the agency seized Georgia’s supply of a key lethal injection drug because of questions about how the stockpile was imported to the U.S. [using the term “seized” conjures up an image of Janet Reno’s automatic weapon bearing agents breaking down doors and “seizing” a young Elian Gonzalez to return him to communist Cuba]

Twelve Days of Obamacations

The hoopla surrounding the Obama’s “historic” trip to India following the expected Democrat/Obama thumping at the polls on November 2 has really not reached fever pitch yet so I wanted to get my licks in early.  Amid concerns of Indian officials that his visit will increase the likelihood of violence as extremists look for publicity the level of security has been heightened.  While the President deserves security, maybe some accommodations could be made for economy.  We are in the worst recession since the Great Depression after all.
