The Gist of a Spoiler: How to begin, and how it should end.

(The Hawk! @ 12 – promoted by buhdydharma )

I just wrote a piece for ePluribus Media that I think you’d like to check out. It has embedded video, multiple links in “Wikipedia” style, a few footnotes and a couple great images.

It was a lot of work.

I’m not going to repost the whole thing, but I am going to provide the punch-line — the spoilers, the ending — but it won’t ruin anything for you.

Trust me on this: you won’t mind reading the full piece over there, ‘cuz you’ll still be cheering the spoilers from over here.

Here’s the tail end, in blockquotes:

It’s fitting, in this age of rising gas prices, oil wars, energy behemoths, auto giants, global climate crises and illegal warfare to end with this rather interesting quote3 from the father of the modern automobile:

Don’t find fault.  Find a remedy.  ~Henry Ford

Indeed.  In fact, I have a suggestion or four…:

 

Actually, I guess that’s five, and that’s just what I’d call “a good start.”  Here’s where it should end:

See what I mean? (I hope!) And here’s the two pertinent footnotes:

3. From QuoteGarden.
4. Courtesy of The Dood Abides – The Last Round-up (a.k.a. The Bush Administration Frogwalk).

Ideally, you’ll forgive my lack of a full crosspost, and you’ll go check out the full piece on ePluribus Media. You might also like this one, too.

I do have some Docudharma stuff coming soon, as well. I’m hoping to build up a repertoire of different content at different sites instead of crossposting the same piece all over creation.

Let me know in comments what you think, and if you approve.

    I wasn’t sure this would work as FP material, but hoped that people would check it out.

    It’s now up at BuzzFlash, too (a blurb that points to the article on ePM), so folks who can buzz it are welcomed to do so. Here’s the buzz:

    War crimes. Heinous acts of aggression that befit no civilized nation. Actions that foster fear and loathing, which all societies on earth should ban. Men and women of conviction, standing trial over those to be convicted. With an excerpt of both video and transcript from “Judgement at Nuremberg” in hand, check out the road we may soon find ourselves on.

    to the place I found it. I’d seen it several places before and don’t know who actually created the original, so I credited the place I located it at when I first looked for it.
