If you were one of the Union troops in the 56th Massachusetts like Richard Clow in 1865, you’d have been looking out over the top of sand bags and trenches to the grassy slops beyond from which you would have expected the Confederate troops to come. In the distance you see the Chemin de Frises (Fresian Horses) named after the early cavalry stoppers invented by the Fresians in Europe. These logs, chained together with their projecting sticks would prevent a massed cavalry charge across the open field. By the time the cavalry managed to cut the connecting chains and roll the obstacles out of the way, and momentum and surprise would be lost and they would be stationary on the field directly in front of the cannon and musket fire. Even infantry had a hard time getting past these obstacles. Note that once across the field the Infantry or cavalry would still have another big obstacle slowing them down in any frontal assault on this small fort (very similarly built to the one Richard Clcow occupied, Fort Alexander Hayes). That obstacle was the line of “Abatis” (sharpened stakes and or bushes pointing directly out from the sides of the mud trench that needed to be crossed by the troops in assault. Note the sandbags and wickerwork holding mud walls that also protect the defending troops. A pretty formidable obstacle course, don’t you agree?

Essay on the Infallibility of Politicians views through the Protestant Principle
We just recently passed the very important Protestant Church Date of Reformation Sunday (commemorating the approximate date of 31 October, 1517, when Martin Luther supposedly posted his 95 theses on the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Germany).
One of the basic ideas behind the Protestant reformation applied to the infallibility of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church. It was called the Protestant Principle.
This Protestant Principle states loosely that: Only God is to be worshiped and only God can be infallible. Thus the Church, the Pope, and human beliefs and doctrines which are not God are therefore fallible. That is to say they are prone to error!
How does this apply to the political scene within today’s empire, more commonly known as the United States of America?
What is the real core of Politics that it cannot live under the above principle of infallibility?
a. shrewd or prudent in practical matters; tactful; diplomatic.
b. contrived in a shrewd and practical way; expedient: as in a politic reply.
Do you get the gist of where I am leading?
In either case, it is time for the Empire of the United States of America to beware!
Promise me not to read the last chapter in this mystery until you finish the rest of the book. It’s a good one. I love Hillerman’s trio of retired Officer Leaphorn, Lt. Jim Chee and beautiful Officer Berni Maunuelito who wend their way through Navajo cultural parables, taboos and medicine men to solve another murder on the reservation. Will Lt. Chee finally get off his behind and propose to the lady who adores him? Will Leaphorn once again cross the line of legality to fiddle the evidence of the old tobacco tin? Will they locate killer Denton’s lost wife before the inevitable happens? When will the FBI get a truly competent Navajo speaker who can unravel the medicine tales of a cultural icon such as Hostiin Peshlakai? Patience my friends, all shall come to those who have patience. Read the book!
A fuzzy skipper butterfly pollinates a flower just about as well as a bee or bee fly. Don’t kill these babies, they may look like clothes moths, but they are really an ancient type of butterfly that rests with it’s wings in this funny cocked position rather than wide open or closed.
Here’s a super close-up photo of another great non-bee pollinator that we need to protect in case Honey Bee Colony Collapse Syndrome wrecks our bee industry.
