  • The Ink-Stained Wretch: My Hero, A Coward
    comedy A WWII black comedy set in London this may be the nerviest take on war ever even eclipsing Preston Sturge s great Hail the Conquering Hero Take this scene where James Garner as a self professed coward leads a grieving wife and mother to see an alternate way to understand war It s not war that s insane you see it s the morality of it It s not greed and ambition that makes wars it s goodness Wars are always fought for the best of reasons for liberation or manifest destiny always against tyrany and always in the interest of humanity So far this war we ve managed to butcher some 10 000 000 humans in the interest of humanity Next war it seems we ll have to destroy all of man in order to preserve his damn dignity I don t trust people who make bitter reflections about war Mrs Barham It s always the generals with the bloodiest records who are the first to shout what a hell it is It s always the war widows who lead the Memorial Day parades We shall never end wars Mrs Barham by blaming it on ministers and generals or warmongering imperialists or all the other banal bogeys It s the rest of us who build statues to those generals and name boulevards after those ministers The rest of us who make heroes of our dead and shrines of our battlefields We wear our widow s weeks like nuns Mrs Barham and perpetuate war by exalting its sacrifices My brother died at Anzio an everyday soldier s death no special heroism involved They buried what pieces they found of him But my mother insists he died a brave death and pretends to be very proud You re very hard

  • The Ink-Stained Wretch: Reading
    sought and presented I m not sure how useful this book would be to folks who have already done much in the way of IA coursework but I found it easy to read quickly and pretty helpful Plus Morville quotes my friend Mike Pusateri More importantly I finally finished the Baroque Cycle Weighing in at over 3000 pages it s taken me over two years to finally find enough time to read Quicksilver The Confusion and The System of the World I know many folk who have struggled to read these books compared to Cryponomicon which was infinitedly more user friendly but it really does start to kick into overdrive around 200 pages into the first book The main thing is that Stephenson writes novels of ideas and you have to be willing to go along for the ride Long digressions on sewage goldsmithing the machinations of the Nobility and the Mobility the architecture of the Towwer of London and sundry sex acts And of course the history of science told from inside Which means that science is viewed in the context of religion politics art piracy and finance Ultimately it s a pretty stunning accomplishment Having written a couple
