  1. The Dude goes into politics - the hardest job in the world...

    Now, if by any chance you have missed the previous chapters, there's a summary here at chapter 10.

    However, this new chapter is more of the sort of personal thoughts rather than an account of what's going on and I'd like to start from this comment I made back at chapter 9:

    The Wolf On The Run
    The Wolf At War
    Childhood’s End

  5. Then the Birds Began to Die

    An article by Elizabeth Bruenig, staff writer at the Atlantic

    After the end of the world, there will be birdsong. I used to imagine this when everything was going awry. I would lie in bed in my college dorm room and listen to the lone mockingbird who sang all night outside my window in the spring months.
