Something Completely Different

Rudyard Kipling was one of my favorite authors during my teen years.

Today there is an interesting article in The Independent about the loss of Kipling's 18 year old son, John, in the carnage on the Western Front at Loos. The boy's death devastated his father, but never diminished Kipling's remarkable patriotism.

Are you familiar with Kipling's "The Village That Voted The Earth Was Flat"?
