Eject! Eject! Eject!

Here is a website that should be visited regularly.

Most significant are Bill Whittle's Essays from a Democracy at War ("Silent America" in the right-hand margin), which he has been planning to issue in book form. There are soliloquies about strength, responsibility, confidence, courage, history, freedom, honor, power, celebrity, empire, victory, and… magic.

Last, but not least, is the essay devoted to war, which takes on special significance when Bill gets "get down to brass tacks", providing thoughtful replies to "some of the reasons why people oppose this war" (below cause # 5 for the war, about 13 clicks down the right margin).
