Obama’s newest idea:
I try not to make it a steady diet on this blog, but sometimes I think I’m seeing stuff in my own novels come to life.
In my first printed novel Paludavia (written in 2003,) I have the left-wing Republic of Verecunda defended in part by its underfunded and undermanned (and underwomaned to boot) military and by a force known as the “Inland Police.” Same Inland Police have a reputation for brutality. Their crack unit is referred to as the “Sacred Band.”
So how well do they defend the country? Read it and find out.
