If it's done right, although it won't exactly be a happy Scene. The Rydeker plan might start a few debates :)

Oh, certainly it will, but reading it I could kinda see the logic behind it. It certainly isn't nice, but I suppose you could understand the why.

It unfortunately was a perfect yet emotionless solution to the problem. And interesting that other countries came up with the exact same solution despite not having read his report until after they had implemented their own plan.

I'm curious as to whether you think the American solution would actually work?

Leaving some population centers as bait to delay the hordes, and pulling back to secure areas with the rest? I guess it would depend on how well they could fort up, and if those secure areas would have enough infrastructure to survive and prosper.

In No Particular Order:

The Knight-- Gene Wolfe
Stardust- Neil Gaiman
Fragile Things- Neil Gaiman
Best of Sci-Fi 2007 -Various

Thinking about trying to learn Hebrew so I can have a go at the Zohar. Or the Torah, for that matter.

Looking for more from Lawrence Watt-Evans, particularly the next book in The Wizard Lord series.

I found 1984 in my trunk, and I'm re-reading that between phone calls.  I used to teach it back before they decided I was a crappy teacher, but I lost all my notes/PowerPoint presentations, etc... otherwise, I'd post them to the Wiki, just for giggles.  It was a good unit, if I do say so myself.  The theme was: "Love and the Government".  A couple kids got a kick out of it, said they enjoyed reading it.

3 books in no particular order :
"Fool's errand by Robin Hobb"
"Nicomaque ethics  by Aristotle"
"Dark matter and dark energy
Mysteries of the universe
by Alain Bouquet and Emmanuel Monnier" (tried to translate the title in English)

I may guess your faces, 3 books of 3 different kind of literature, but I love to read ;)
