Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs." --San Antonio Express-News

Ann Coulter has cancelled her speech at UC-Berkeley

The fascists win: Ann Coulter has cancelled her speech at UC-Berkeley, scheduled for April 27.

She cites as her reason for cancelling as the fact that the two groups that had sponsored her lecture had both cancelled that sponsorship out of fear of violence and the refusal of the university and the local government to provide protection. Their lawsuits against the university however will go on.

Regardless, this is now what urban California has become, a fascist state where expressing conservative views leaves you vulnerable to violence, with the local authorities working with the violent brown-shirted thugs to help them squelch freedom.

    If WWII is any indicator, the only way to beat BST (BrownShirtedThugs) is by being a lot tougher, and way better organized.

    I am beginning to think that Eisenhower mistook a temporary German setback in 1945 as a total allied victory.

    Anyway, with a little luck they will still burn down the rest of the place.

    Indeed, the nazis could win over the Stalin-Soviet sponsored communists, who even put sharp shooters on the roof tops during opposition demonstrations in Weimar Germany, because they were even tougher.

    That has to be one of the shortest articles Reuters ever produced. It is in the Humanitarian section and tagged War and Conflict. It doesn’t look like Reuters is too sympathetic to people who are being attacked by their activist compatriots.
