I first wrote about this in 2013, but it needs updating. You see, the Quickening is upon us.
I’m not Ann Coulter’s biggest fan. We’re separated by 20 years of a kind of snark that doesn’t sit easy with me.

This is why they fear it. And by fear it, I mean nightmarish fear. To Euro regulators today, the average Italian villager is still just one deregulation away from taking every member of their management class and hanging his head on a pike[…]
