    It is a great installment, save Sputnik’s enthusiastic endorsement of April’s military intervention against Somali pirates. This cheerleading is not a little disconcerting, although the TR guys continue on to provide the context and motives, largely missing from major media coverage, behind Somali piracy.

    The North Carolina Museum of History currently has a rather large pirate exhibit that is surprisingly thorough, exploring everything from the roots of early piracy to modern piracy to efforts to rescue artifacts from the wreck that is believed to be the Queen Anne’s Revenge.

    I guess significant mention of Cory’s books doesn’t hurt their chances of promotion here.

    NAPSTIMPY – that sounded rather insulting. Perhaps you could clarify?

    No snark intended, though I can see why some might be detected.

    There is enthusiastic and genuine endorsement of Cory’s work in the Tank Riot episode in the midst of the Creative Commons discussion. So I’m not surprised the episode caught Cory’s attention, nor am I surprised it was mentioned here. Why not take advantage of a found opportunity for promotion of your stuff?

    If it matters: Love TR and BB, have not read any of Cory’s books.
