To the Stars Is Sending Me a Free Book
My apologies for a lack of a post today. I had to take advantage of a break in the week of rain we have had here to do yard work, and the raking and pruning ended up taking a lot more time than I anticipated. On the other hand, I did receive an email from the publicist working with Tom DeLonge to promote the next book in the Sekret Machines: God, Man, and War series. The book is due out soon, and To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science offered me a free copy. I found that amusing, but apparently the book is on its way to me as we speak. I am sure there is a lesson in there somewhere about publicity, but I will say this: This makes TTSA a few ticks brighter than the History Channel. Speaking of them: There is no new episode of Ancient Aliens this week, so I have today off!

I disagree with your last sentence. There hasn't been a new episode of Ancient Aliens for years. All their episodes are repeats of previous episodes, sometimes even using footage of episodes shown years before. I mean that is truly lazy and shows how little respect they have for their audience.

Is the AA audience worthy of respect? AA seems to have a business model similar to an NFL franchise that realized long ago that its fanbase is mostly a bunch of mouth breathers who will show up or tune in week after week for a perennial 6-10 team. Why risk a lot of time and money for quality when the profits are solid from peddling crap.

Jason, you're not okay with the assassination talk in "Did Donald Trump Really Say America Had a Relationship with the Roman Empire?" are you?
