This is all made up unfortunately, but it's still really fun to read. It seems that after all of the FOI requests made over the years and prying out of DoD documents and so on that the UFO phenomenon was nothing more than a Cold War disinformation pl ...more
Elliott liked a quote
The Ghost Road by Pat Barker
Ghosts everywhere. Even the living were only ghosts in the making. You learned to ration your commitment to them. This moment in this tent already had the quality of remembered experience. Or perhaps he was simply getting old. But then, after all, in trench time he was old. A generation lasted six months, less than that on the Somme, barely twelve weeks.Pat Barker

Well, I've been thinking about writing a review for this book since I first got on goodreads. I've been saving it because I thought that maybe I can write it better a little later on, but I'm not getting any younger, and I hate this book only more. Y ...more

Woody Guthrie
“You will never find peace with these fascists
You'll never find friends such as we
So remember that valley of Jarama
And the people that'll set that valley free.
From this valley they say we are going
Do not hasten to bid us adieu
Even though we lost the battle at Jarama
We'll set this valley before we're through.
All this world is like this valley called Jarama
So green and so bright and so fair
No fascists can dwell in our valley
Nor breathe in our new freedoms air.”
Woody Guthrie

José Martí
“A good soul on earth hurts very much.”
José Martí

“Some times I live in the country
Some times I live in town
Some times I take a great notion
To jump in the river and drown

Irene good night Irene good night
Good night Irene Good night Irene
I'll see you in my dreams”
American Traditional Folk Song

John Steinbeck
“Whenever they's a fight so hungry people can eat, I'll be there. Whenever they's a cop beatin' up a guy, I'll be there . . . . I'll be in the way guys yell when they're mad an'-I'll be in the way kids laugh when they're hungry an' they know supper's ready. An' when our folks eat the stuff they raise an' live in the houses they build-why, I'll be there." Tom Joad”
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“This western-front business couldn’t be done again, not for a long time. The young men think they could do it but they couldn’t. They could fight the first Marne again but not this. This took religion and years of plenty and tremendous sureties and the exact relation that existed between the classes. The Russians and Italians weren’t any good on this front. You had to have a whole-souled sentimental equipment going back further than you could remember. You had to remember Christmas, and postcards of the Crown Prince and his fiancée, and little cafés in Valence and beer gardens in Unter den Linden and weddings at the mairie, and going to the Derby, and your grandfather’s whiskers.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night
