For the past several weeks, political chatter has centered on the debates. From Obama's sleepy performance in the first debate, to "Uncle Joe" Biden's scoffing and calling out of GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan, to the president calling Mitt Romney "offensive" for his comments on the assassination of the US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

The famous line from another GREAT Clint Eastwood film is better: "Business is business. Maybe the guy's a Republican."

(What film is that from ?)

Gee that's too bad. What a waste. I never knew the man.

You mean this guy?

"The life and times of Arch Stanton mean pretty much nothing to anyone. His was a fictional name with significance in a chess game between outlaws in the film The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. He was, by all accounts, the name of a soldier who fought in the American Civil War and died during the conflict. Buried in a grave in a cemetery for war dead called Sad Hill, his only claim to fame was being buried next to $200,000 in Confederate gold."

Yes, and there's a whole genre of literature which is "biographical fiction". Don't you read anything ?!

(btw, I've only read one novel in the "alternative history" genre and it was excellent. It's called "1901", is by author Robert Conroy, and is about the German invasion of the U.S. at the beginning of the 20th century. Excellent alternative history novel.)

In general, novels are not written to be "useful" but rather to be "entertaining", and for other purposes.

I suppose I'm too busy surviving and don't have time for entertainment.

Too bad for me.
