The WCE blog is loosely based on reality. It is filled mostly with my whimsical imaginations. I do hope that it does have things to say about human nature. And because it purports to lampoon human nature, it does so from a conservative perspective. As Lady Thatcher says, "the facts of life are conservative."
This thoughts come to mind as I found two things on the Internet that show maybe my silliest scenarios in the WCE Blog are not so silly after all. Exhibit one: this column by George Jonas. The column is about Qaddafi and the Earthquake, but toward the end it makes a defense of dynastic marriage -- the ancient practice of uniting kingdoms by marriage. Says Jonas, "The medieval motto of one historic dynasty was similar to the 1960s hippie injunction of "Make Love, Not War." Brilliant! Now, it was only yesterday, that I published an entry in my WCE blog announcing that the King of the Wuxi Expatdom was marrying a princess from the Azanian Empire! Exhibit two, was made reference to as I was listening to the latest Radio Derb podcast. John Derbyshire said it was a year ago that a Korean man married his Japanese pillow. I googled and found the story. One of the first things I had happen in the Wuxi China Expatdom was a craze for marrying inanimate objects.
I think I can rightly say that the WCE Blog is more real than reality.
