The sheriff’s office says Jeremy J. Kendall, 37, was arrested Wednesday for first-degree arson in connection with the Sleepy Hollow Fire which started in late June. The fire burned 2,900 acres, destroyed 28 homes and several commercial buildings. According to probable cause documents, Kendall confessed to starting the fire. He also allegedly told the sheriff’s office the Department of Health was “somehow transmitting voices to his head and also controlling his body.” He allegedly told deputies the voices in his head and other factors were too much to deal with.Voices in his head and other factors. What other alleged factors belong in the same alleged category as alleged voices? Voices in his head and the alleged heartbreak of psoriasis. Voices in his head and allegedly tasteless nacho chips. Voices in his head and Trump chalkings. That must be it. Nothing else is so totally overpowering.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
