My, last week: Hmm. Those trousers look tight as is. Did she bring one with more room for her coming bodacious booty?
I can’t really say “told yu so” just because i didn’t toot it out loud.
I just want to toot about EGS a bit to get the foul mental taste of that gastly Heinlein novel i finished out of my mind.
Unfortunately, the main story is moving really slowly at the moment.
So, horns, eh‽ They ar supposed to show you’r evil, but the look cute.
Man, i got caught up badly in the racism of that novel.
So the PanAsians are the evil invaders. So far the racism is clear.
The one Asian-American mentioned is one of the Good Guys™. Well, Heinlein made it hard for him to fight for the other Good Guys™.
But then, the actual Good Guys™ are all “Caucasian”. Where TF ar the African-Americans?
A few comics earlier we got what must be one of the greatest beat panels ever:
―Maybe the park? … The mall?
―Are you trying to pick a neutral location?
―Glienicke bridge, between Potsdam and Berlin?
I could rage-toot about every other page of this, i ges.
Now the spy meets an old frend, an American with Chinese, Japanese and “Caucasian”, i.e. European ancestry, and immediately assumes he’d “find it easy to get along with the new regime.” That is exactly the mindset that led to the US internment of Japanese-Americans during the second world war.
