Dancing plastic army men!

Yesterday, I was part of a panel that discussed the War of 1812, which figured heavily in Connecticut’s history, and in my closing statements — which I didn’t prepare and which just kind of fell out my mouth — I said that maybe as a culture we don’t actually like war, that we’re always fighting the last war in part because we haven’t the stomach to prepare for the next one. (Eventually, you can watch the event here.)

So when I found this video — a fabulous use of those old plastic army soldiers that used to piled up in the corners of my house when I was a kid — I thought what a wonderful use of a militia. So enjoy.

    1. There was a brief discussion of regional differences yesterday. I wish we’d had time to talk about that more.
