I love discovering long-ago battles that everyone seems to have forgotten, such as the Great Northern War between Charles XII of Sweden and Peter the Great of Russia in 1700.

Well, what a controversial column that was: “What do you do every day in Mexico?” I have never received so many e-mails on any other subject. I didn’t think it was such a big deal.
A few weeks ago someone passing my chair, I am not sure who, whispered “Naysayer” at me in a very aggressive way. Now I can take the thrust and parry at the club as well as any other mem for it usually falls from me like water off of a duck’s back, but not this. This stung. To accuse your Major of punching holes in other’s ideas and plans seems cruel and unusual in the extreme. However after some digging I think I now know why I was so hurtfully singled out.
