Linkzookery is a bit thin this week. Feel free to link to cool stuff in the comments or to trackback this post with posts you think MO readers will be interested in. Also, I’d like to include trackbacks in the main post (like Wizbang does, for instance), but only for Linkzookery posts. That way I […]
Month: September 2005
The F-14 Tomcat made its final public appearance as an active part of the Navy over the September 17th weekend in an air show at Naval Air Station Oceana, Va. The classic Northrup Grumman fighter jet that rose to prominence in the 1986 hit film “Top Gun” and has worn U.S. Navy colors since its […]

Don’t forget that SERENITY opens today. If you like sci-fi, you will almost certainly like this film. I don’t think it’s as revolutionary as many claim and, in fact, the more I think about it the more I think it’s sort of “the Adventures of Young Han Solo” or maybe “Han Solo if he didn’t […]

US Hands Holy Shiite City Karbala Over to Iraqis Iraqi forces take over their second major city. Who would have ever guessed it? It’s almost like there’s a plan or something.
The DeLay Dilemma And The Successor Search The Moderate Voice: The Republicans have now come circle from those days when Newt Gingrich excitedly talked of an impending Republican Revolution that wouldn’t just be in terms of policy but in terms of political purity — a future with term limits, where the corrupt Democratic party order […]
Sat-Guided Cannon Ready to Blast Think of it as the howitzer’s answer to smart bombs. This could be hitting the field within six months.
How to Win in the Horn of Africa I was just talking about this the other day to a friend. My point was that, despite the headlines from Iraq (and even Afghanistan if something bad happens to us), there are many other battles being fought in many other places, one of them eastern Africa. Some […]
As I noted earlier, I was able to attend an early screening of the new film SERENITY. It’s based on the cancelled series FIREFLY, which I was unfamiliar with. The trailer was particularly unimpressive, and I wasn’t really expecting much, to be honest. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised. Not only is SERENITY […]
