Polistra is troubled...
Polistra is ill with a mysterious malady.
The doctor has been called. - - - - - - - - - - Polistra:
Please, Doc, what's wrong with me?Doctor:
Young lady, you've got the disease everyone's talking about. Yes, you've got the Word Flu.
Worst case I've ever seen.Pol:
Is it .... ? Is it .... ?Doc:
No, it's not fatal. But it will turn your brain to mush if we don't cure it quickly.Pol:
Okay, Doc. What do I need to do? - - - - - - - - - - Doc:
Give up television entirely, get plenty of rest, and take one of these daily.Pol:
What is it? - - - - - - - - - - Doc:
'Words at War'. Dramatized versions of stories from a long-distant time and place when words actually meant something, and when lives actually meant something.Pol:
I feel better already, just knowing there's a cure.Doc:
The first story
is the strongest possible prescription for Word Flu. What's more, you're in the story!Pol:
Well, not precisely, but a young lady that you'll definitely recognize. - - - - - - - - - -
Dear reader, if you want your own antidote to the Word Flu, OTRCAT.COM
is the place to get it. They have a special emphasis on archival items like Roosevelt and Churchill speeches, and the best selection of truly fine and intelligent radio programs from that era, like 'Words at War' and 'Theater of Romance'. Nothing in today's media remotely compares to those two series for sheer literary quality, not even counting the more obvious question of bias. You won't find any cheap flag-waving or glossing over the terrors of war, but you will find a steady and deep commitment to the success of Western civilization and Christianity. Those writers and actors knew in their hearts and spines that we were better than the enemy, so they didn't have to say it or show it.
