Cheerleader vs James Bond: It's a Tie!

Reactions:  
I've been asked to do a series of blogs on Criminal Element this year.

The first one is up is titled AIRPORT TRAVEL FOR THE PARANOID AND DELUSIONAL

The next and most recent article is titled HOW TO USE ESPIONAGE TRAINING AT A PARTY. I credit editor Peter Joseph with the idea. After thinking about it, though, it really wrote itself.



Take a close look at the picture. See the dress on James Bond? It's because I said that the single greatest perpetrator of espionage is the American cheerleader. Want to know more? Then you have to read it, I guess.
 
I'll be doing others like MY BENE GESSERIT BOX, and TRAINING CHALLENGES IN PAPUA NEW GUINEA.



It would be cool if you all could flip over and maybe comment once or twice.

In addition to mine, there are quite a few interesting bloggers on Criminal Element. I particular like Dave Richard's blog, Westeros Noir: A Game of Thrones as Crime Fiction, where he parses the plot to demonstrate the criminality of it. Now I REALLY can't wait for GAME OF THRONES.

There's also some good information about new books coming out, the fall television line-up, an essay about author Ross MacDonald, and my recent favorite article about a guy who orders a television and instead gets a combat rifle

Regardless, get over there and kill some time while you're in line at Wal-Mart, or on the train, or whatever it is you're doing when you wish you were doing something else.
