Are we entering a new dark night of political and cultural devolution in America? To find out, I went for a night recce patrol with  Blue Destroyer.
I didn’t see any riots, weirdly, but I did see a flag.
Still, the streets were pretty deserted. Everyone was probably inside, cleaning weapons, loading magazines, and making sure their kit was silent.
The air was full of the smell of burning mesquite. Was it smoke from a burn pile, blowing in from the fields, or people throwing the most immediate fuel source on their fires to keep warm? Who knows, that intel is being passed up to higher command for in-depth analysis.
Less happily, there was some skunk in the air too. I didn’t see the skunk.
And then we were back at the Compound, recce over.
Mind how you go,
