The Gods of Wisdom and Virtue
Whittle does poetry....who knew?
so anyway, Bill Whittle modernizes Kipling:
On Whittle and poetry: I like Whittle's Afterburner, Firewall, and Trifecta work, but I really miss his long form essay work from back in the EjectEjectEject days. Every four or six or eight months, he'd drop 10,000+ words of wisdom and the blogosphere would glow with white-hot phosphorescence for a couple of weeks. Then again, I'm one of those sick, twisted freaks who would rather read ten thousand words than watch a ten minute video.
As for poetry; I am not what you'd consider an authority. Sure, I can recite The Charge of the Light Brigade and Casey at the Bat from memory, my Kipling experience begins (and ends) with Tommy.
That said, I did search out the grave-site of Robert Frost, when I found myself in Bennington. Vermont this summer
"Who's woods they are I do not know, His house is in the village, though"
Miles to go before I sleep, and all that siht.
