What Else Can It Be Today : 1984

At left, my favorite George and some of today's most germane required reading.


Oh, there are indeed rough men who are prepared to visit violence upon others in the night - even though George did not utter those particular words.

What is clear is that we are ready to be shot now that our minds are clear.

I have to run. I'm late directing missiles onto airstrip one by use of coded radio signals.

Double Plus Good.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away.. 

Excerpted from the Poem "Antigonish" by Hugh Mearns. 

It's the obligatory rhyme of the clandestine service. It's taught to children.  Did father teach it to you? Do you know what father did?
