The night of March 12th is finally over, with the Duma declaring itself the ruling authority and the Emperor sending four regiments to crush the rebellion in St. Petersburg. We don't know what happens after that because books 4-8 aren't translated.
Supposedly they all will be, but God knows when. Amazon doesn't even have a way to preorder any of them. This is like a nonfiction Wheel of Time in length and scope and number of characters, and yet, with all this furious verbiage, we never even get to the Bolshevik revolution, the whole story covers the February revolution only. And yet it seems to me that the biggest mystery in the world was why the Russian people went along with the Bolsheviks, and that mystery apparently will never be answered. The question isn't even being asked. Oh well, Solzenitysn is such a great writer, even learning about the February revolt is never time wasted.
Next up is some more Spice and Wolf short stories. 8 people have now completed their downloads of my music hall of fame, so it seems everyone who wants it has it. The remaining seven billion people on Earth have no idea what they're missing out on.
Just as I predicted, the Saints vs. Vikings game was a classic. The lead changed four times in the last few minutes. There was just no telling what was going to happen until the clock hit zero. The surprising match was Jacksonville vs. Pittsburgh. It too ended up being a classic, with two 4th down hail mary touchdown completions, two defensive touchdowns, and everything being about as crazy as humanly possible. The Jaguars emerged victorious but the journey was fun the whole ludicrous way. Next week has no chance to match those games. I'd be happy if they were even half as good. But now it's time for the Eagles vs. Vikings and Jaguars vs. Patriots. (for that matter, the Eagles/Falcons game was good too!).
