No matter how much we want to look forward we inevitably end up looking back. Perhaps that explains why the Attorney General is looking into possible charges against CIA officers who went too far with interrogations. Perhaps it’s how we end up with a liveblog of the German invasion of Poland. And perhaps that’s why even RSBS looked 100 years into the past over the last few days.
But sometimes it is helpful to look backwards for understanding the present. Here are a few examples.
Glenn Beck’s Cantankerousness:

Jeff’s Inability to Find a Woman:

Kyle Farnsworth’s Current Home Somewhere in Missouri:
One word: Crybaby
