The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

I was unhappy with the lack of privacy in the U.S. BEFORE the NSA scandal broke. Sometimes I just want to go off-grid and live in the woods somewhere. But then I remember how much I hate bugs.
Barry Rubin tells us why the NSA spying on Americans is an utter waste of time. Read the whole thing, but this is the most salient portion: There is a fallacy behind the current intelligence strategy of the United States, … Continue reading
Trust us, we’re here to help you: Once again, international peacekeepers have fled from the violence on the borders of Israel, this time in the Golan. Every single peace plan that mentions Jerusalem as an international city insists that Israel … Continue reading
Saw the Tony Awards tonight. American theater isn’t dead, but it’s definitely in decline. The only pleasant surprise was the number from the musical of “A Christmas Story” (yes, the one with Ralphie and the gun). But I wasn’t very … Continue reading
