. . . whose image I post here for the simple reason that I simply love
the no-nonsense tight business skirt look. I understand this is from a TV show called Madmen, which I have not seen and about which I know nothing.

THE MYTH OF THE GOOD WAR by Jacques Pauwels

Just finished Jacques R. Pauwels' The Myth of the Good War: an excellent read. It's all about America's real reasons for getting into WWII, and they aren't pretty. Some of the things the book talks about are the American power elite's sympathy for fascism, American corporations making big money in Nazi Germany manufacturing weapons for Hitler, and the largely American inspired division of Germany into two at the end of the war-- and there's lots more. Highly recommended. Tired of the "Greatest Generation" bullshit? Try this. Pauwels is a good writer. He also says in his forward that "the pages that follow do not offer any dramatic revelations or hitherto unknown facts." This is no "conspiracy theorist" in the pejorative sense of that loaded term. Pauwels simply shines a light on things that have been willfully overlooked or dishonestly interpreted for decades.

Not to put too fine a point on it, this lovely red Catwoman is simply adorable. I think Ted Valkenburg, the artist, paints some of the sexiest pictures I have ever seen.

There is much to be said for unashamedly large bottoms -- especially when they are tightly girdled in form-fitting red rubber. This lady is not afraid to flaunt her stuff!

Don't you just want to sneak up behind and give her a good smack? Wait until she's finished with her pencil, however, because you don't want her to get poked in the eye!

And then I came across the wild notion,
that a house too good for me
wasn't good enough for anyone.
