Monday Reading Assignment: Richard Clarke's "Ten Years Later..."

Hey, I may be out of circulation today as far as aggressively blogging is concerned, but I can passively blog. My dear friend Jean-Marc Lofficier sent me the link to this fascinating piece of speculative political sf by none other than Richard A. Clarke, former national coordinator for security and counterterrorism for Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

It was published January of this year in The Atlantic Monthly, and is even more timely today -- give "Ten Years Later" a read, unless you have an aversion to heavily footnoted science fiction.

Hmmm, I hereby nominate John Milius to script and direct the movie. Do I hear a second?

Here ya go:

    Ah, there ya go, trying to drag me back into comics again... tsk, tsk.

    Besides, Shawn, Clarke left out the best stuff to draw: terrorists riding Tyrannosaurs and Triceratops into Yankee Stadium, a'la Kona, Monarch of Monster Isle -- gotta keep the kid in me happy while I'm drawing...

    What terror alert level do you think that'd be, Steve? :)
