COMMENT: As a boy, I loved the Hollywood motion picture made from H.G. Wells’ novel The Time Machine. In that sci-fi classic, the world is transformed after a nuclear holocaust. Gentle survivors on the surface of the earth are raised and harvested for food by mutant cannibals called the Morlocks, who live underground. (One is pictured at right with Yvette Mimeux [“Weena”].)
A recent incident, which casts further aspersions on the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan, involved a series of apparently pre-meditated killings of Afghan civilians. One of the figures convicted in a court martial was Specialist Jeremy Morlock from Wasilla, Alaska.
The Morlocks are associates of the Palin family in that admittedly small community. Is this a mere coincidence, arising from a crude, immature and [possibly] racist orientation on the part of Morlock? That may well be the case. The timing, however, is singularly unfortunate, making things just that much tougher for the U.S., the troops in Afghanistan and elsewhere and, of course, for the Obama administration.
There are real, very monstrous Morlocks on the earth’s surface, or so it would appear.
EXCERPT: . . . . In my little teaser in the comments earlier today I said that it will have a bit of everything. The main part of the events have to do with the Palins and the Morlocks, two families who are very close to each other. The children grew up and played together, they went to school with each other, they had sleepovers at each other’s houses, the kids had Sarah Palin’s cellphone number saved and some of the adults have known each other for more than 30 years. The association of the families is very, very tight.
If you think you recognize this name: I am talking about the family of Jeremy Morlock, the soldier from Wasilla who was recently arrested for being under suspicion of murder, while being on duty in Afghanistan. . . .
