Thanks, Rob. I Feel Enabled. Poor Readers!

In this week’s newslet­ter, Rob Brezs­ny has this advice for me and oth­er Scorpios:

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Wide­ly regard­ed as a top mil­i­tary his­to­ri­an, Mar­tin van Crev­eld has writ­ten books that have been influ­en­tial in shap­ing mod­ern the­o­ries of war­fare. The U.S. Army makes his work required read­ing for its offi­cers. That’s why it was so remark­able when he described Amer­i­ca’s inva­sion of Iraq in 2003 as “the most fool­ish war since Emper­or Augus­tus in 9 BC sent his legions into Ger­many and lost them.” I urge you to reg­u­lar­ly imi­tate Crev­eld’s exam­ple in 2006, Scor­pio: Speak out in dra­mat­ic fash­ion against the fol­lies that your exper­tise gives you the right to cri­tique. Draw­ing on your spe­cial expe­ri­ence and knowl­edge, make rig­or­ous eval­u­a­tions of the author­i­ties and insti­tu­tions whose deci­sions affect your life.

Well. Okay then. You know, we’re ter­ri­bly shy about say­ing what we think, we Scor­pios. Espe­cial­ly me.
