Police found Mr. W. at the beginning of April in a parked freight train car at Dortmund's main train station. He had no money, no ID card and no clue who he was or how he came to be in the train wagon, according to the statement. The only items the man had on him were in a brown bag, namely an asthma spray and four books - three of which were historical biographies on figures in the Habsburg family. When police asked who he was, he told them he was King Ludwig of Bavaria.Well then, why are you arbitrarily calling him Herr W? When Doug Perry defines as a woman named Donna, you INSTANTLY LEAP TO OBEY. Doug never existed. She's Donna. When Chastity Bono defines as a man named Chaz, you INSTANTLY LEAP TO OBEY. He's Chaz. This man has defined as King Ludwig. THEREFORE: No other name ever existed. He was always King Ludwig. NOT incidentally, the previous King Ludwig had the same problem. He lived in a fantasy world where kings and queens of earlier times talked with him and ate meals with him. The previous King's define was obeyed because he was King. Why isn't the current King's define obeyed? Seriously: The current King Ludwig has a genuinely regal appearance. Looks like a dignified authoritarian who would be a good monarch.
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.
