    Boys don’t keep journals. That’s what girls do!

    Like most hard-headed men, he didn’t bother listening to a smart woman who tried to give him some good advice. Too many husbands have learned that wives don’t forget dumb things that they do, even twenty years afterwards. And I know, Susan is not his wife but she would make a good one.

    This strip is good, but it’s better in the context of yesterday’s.

    Actually, that plot line was, sort of, done decades ago in a book titled “White Lotus” by John Hersey.

    First published in 1965, John Hersey’s “White Lotus” is an examination of race relations. It came at the right time. With the Civil Rights movement and revelations into white America’s historic treatment of Native Americans, Hersey flips the cards.

    In the novel, white Americans had become enslaved by the Chinese. We become the subservient race. The story follows a young Arizona girl renamed White Lotus.

    I have a copy on my bookshelf.

    Wasn’t there a television show a number of years back that portrayed America as if the South had won the Civil War?

    Robert Heinlein, one of the most famous Sci-Fi authors of the late 20th Century, wrote that exact book in the early 60’s.

    Robert Heinlein “Farnham’s Freehold”. Not a favorite.

    Daniel Goldman: (08:31)Now Ambassador Taylor, you in your opening statement, you outlined a very detailed timeline and in fact we have a written copy here and you included some phrases and words in quotations. Did you take notes of this conversation on September 1st with Ambassador Sondland?

    Bill Taylor: (08:50)I did.

    Daniel Goldman: (08:51)Did you take notes related to most of the conversations, if not all of them, that you recited in your opening statement?

    Bill Taylor: (08:57)All of them, Mr. Goldman.

    I forget the title but I remember reading a Robert Heinlein book where the black race is dominant and the whites considered the inferiors.

    She DID keep a meticulous Journal. That’s how She remembers all this.

    There is also a post-nuclear war book where the southern continents get off “easy” and blacks take over. All other races are basically farm animals.

    Late 60s, early 70s, I saw a glossy mag cartoon about supposed new TV shows, one of which was called “Blacklash” and depicted blacks owning white slaves — only this wasn’t an alternate history but a secluded group with their own style of reparations. The Uncle Tom figure was played by Walter Brennan. “I ain’t never had no prejudices, Massa.”

    I know the feeling of an unwritten book. My mom is an amateur writer and started writing a zombie-inspired novel. She let me read a few chapters and I really got into it….then she stopped writing. I was so invested in the characters and plot but I may never get to read the rest. :(
