The Bookworm Thinker for 21 Oct. 2021

Welcome, all, on this date of 21 Oct.  On this day:   

1600 — Tokugawa Ieyasu defeats the leaders of rival Japanese clans in the Battle of Sekigahara and becomes shōgun of Japan.  This is also is the ultimate event in arguably the finest and most popular work of historic fiction ever written, James Clavell’s Shogun.

Now on to the important part of this post.

Ms. Book W.

Note from Wolf:  Ms. BWR uses the term “dead letter” to indicate the White House is ignoring the 1st Amendment.  Just to point out, this might be confusing for people who are familiar with the late Justice Scalia’s arguments that the Constitution should be interpreted as a dead document, meaning only what it meant to those who approved it at the time.
