Read Will Rogers column 88 years ago: March 10, 1935

It’s spring on Nantucket and everything is perfectly normal, until a sudden storm blankets the entire island. When the weather clears, the island’s inhabitants find that they are no longer in the late twentieth century…This could just as easily have been a dystopian novel placed in 2100. It is the first of the three alternate history novels of the Nantucket series. I plan on reading the other two in the trilogy plus more of S. M. Stirling’s books but have been transported instead to the Bronze Age! Now they must learn to survive with suspicious, warlike peoples they can barely understand and deal with impending disaster, in the shape of a would-be conqueror from their own time. — Book promo @ goodreads.com

The MainStream Media continues to pump out the propaganda that the Russians a loosing in Bakhmut. But if the Ukraine troops have destroyed the bridges that provide escape for their remaining troops it seems they are trying to recreate The Alamo. I think the Russians have won in Bakhmut.

Information continues to emerge today [4 March 2023] from multiple sources that Zelenky’s troops in Bakhmut destroyed the last few bridges providing resupply and escape routes for its troops. The long battle for Bakhmut appears to have effectively come to an end. Though it is impossible to say with any degree of certainty what the fall of the city will have on the outcome of the war, there are a few consequences likely. — Bakhmut Hangs By A Thread: What Its Likely Loss Means For Ukraine by Daniel Davis
