      What a...novel idea.
      Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

        I hope this isn't a joke.

And if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either. " And I can give you reasonable assurances that the head of Security will not report you for doing so."
        "Because you won't tell yourself about it?"

              I'm all for that.

              While I am a fan of some historical fiction (Golden age of sail mostly -- Kent's Bolitho series, along with Forrester's Hornblower) this idea just struck me as... weird.

              Now if it had more of a Steampunk (or League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) feel, that would be another thing.

                While I love Hornblower, Patrick O'Brian's work blows at all away. I have never read Kent.

                  I could tell by your avatar.

                  Kent's Bolitho series was my first introduction to the genre. They are a good read, but not as sophisticated as O'Brian.

                    There is a lot of garbage out there, too.

                    What's amazing about O'Brian is that the entire texts of the books are written in language contemporary to the time. Not just the characters' words, the entire book. And probably nobody else in the world could smartly write toilet humor.

                            On the subject of historical fiction, I just got into it recently with Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe novels. I'd like to move onto either Hornblower or Aubrey/Maturin (the Master & Commander film was exceptional, so that piqued my interest), but there's so much more great Cornwell that I'm still reading different stuff of his!

                            Any of you read any Cornwell? Hmm. Maybe a historical fiction thread would be better idea than derailing this one further.

                              You will not be disappointed with O'Brian. He does it all: drama, comedy, action, adventure. It's amazing.

                              I will read Agincourt once it comes out in paperback. I have a lot of interest in ancient English battles. The Sharpe series looks good, too.

                              Hmm. Maybe a historical fiction thread would be better idea than derailing this one further.
                              What's this "derailing" you say? Do you mean throwing it off course?
