Not everyone.

We try to make references explicit. That's actually in our authoring guidelines. We can't assume that readers know all of our favorite shows. Tragically, some people lack an even passing familiarity with Star Trek.

That's true. I recently made a set of jigs to turn my hand router into a table router. But it adds more time to a project. Sometimes I'd rather have the real tool available.

I'm curious about the walls, too. They'd be too massive a construction project for a society fighting a losing war.

Alas, I haven't figured out their origin. I'll wait to be surprised.

The Founding Fathers also believed that slavery would die out on its own--and they were terribly wrong. Although the economic value of slavery was degrading in the 1850s, it wasn't collapsing and importance of slavery to Southern society was becoming more entrenched with every passing year.

It was a cancer that had to be burned out. I don't see any other way. And as a Southerner and descendant of Confederate veterans, I am so very glad that the South lost. The worst possible outcome for the South in the Civil War would have been victory.
