BREAKING NEWS: Patrick MacGoohan has died (1928-2009)

Republibot 3.0's picture

I’m stunned. I’m speechless. The biggest of my three role models from sixties – in many ways, my model of how to behave politically – has died.

Owing to bad planning on the part of his Irish parents, MacGoohan was actually born in New York, during a brief and ill-conceived attempt to improve their lot in life. It failed, and they moved back to Ireland shortly thereafter. Some years later, they moved to Ireland. After University, he got in to acting as a trade.

ORIGINAL FICTION: "Dog Days, Part 2"

Republibot 3.0's picture

Part 1 is online here http://www.republibot.com/content/original-fiction-dog-days-part-1 and this is part 2:

Beauchamp woke up to find himself on earth, hallucinating that a dog was looking at him with the somewhat confused expression dogs sometimes get when they’re contemplating deep matters. He was disoriented, and confused, flat on his back, but he had to be on earth because the gravity was much heavier than on Mars, and he could smell plants in the air. How the hell did I get back here?, he wondered, how long have I been out? What…oh, yeah, the aliens in the dome…what the hell?
