Not-so-distant meat grinder thud and rumble of civil war. Stink of fire and gun smoke over Denver, Colorado. Gun smoke. Aftershave of the Old West, and now of the Late West.

It's the same smoke, dark and acrid, that is drifting in heavy clouds over much of North America. The smoke and fire of market-driven hyper-chaos. Accompanied by a dull slaughterhouse roar of episodic racial or cultural pogroms and low-intensity class warfare.
