The US Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines all have ceremonial swords. They are not trained to use them, however -- fencing has been discontinued in all of the service academies EXCEPT the Air Force.

And carrying a sword while fishing the West Branch of The Little Forks Stream is legal. Carrying a shotgun is legal too but it sucks in the alders and one-by-one pines. A sword on your back is also much lighter and doesn't bang you in the back so much as a shotgun does.

The sword wasn't considered obsolete in the Japanese WWII military. However, they were very rigid traditionalists when it came to stuff like that. The swords carried by Japanese officers were very prized and sought after souvenirs by American soldiers who took a lot of trophies off the dead Japanese after the desperate battles that were fought on the various Pacific islands.

Even in Hutton's day the use of the sword was obsolete. The use of his saber today is called "Historical Fencing" -- as is the style of fencing I grew up with.

Well, all very beautiful, if arcane; but to wield a saber in the wild is surely an act of harmful intent, no? Not these carefully stage-managed scenarios of skill. If all we are talking about is a game of electronic blips from touch?s, I'll stick to Angry Birds...

Compare Hutton saber to today's so-called sabre fencing.

Amos, perhaps this best demonstrates how Hutton's saber fencing is done. Note the masks, the elbow guards, the protective jackets, under which would be plastrons. On the other hand, note the choreography and generally wild gyrations done in movies, such as this.

I thought the general idea of sabers was to empower the user to harm others, no? Or is this one intended for dress-up mummery only?

I say, why do you people believe that my saber should be used to harm someone? When properly used (along, perhaps, with one my small contributions to its use) it becomes good exercise and keeps the mind alert. I'm quite flattered that even so many years after my death people would be re-discovering the benefits of this exercise. Better that that of the bloody frogs or wops, anyway.

Of course, since she works in a library Eiseley always uses a silencer.

There is a remedy for pretentious, pontificatin', supercilious bozos like you, Amos, a way to cut 'em done to size and make 'em face up to their own mortality and their pompous delusions of grandeur, and make 'em bite the hard cold bullet of reality instead, but I ain't gonna explain it here, cos people might get offended, and it wouldn't do no good anyways, cos nothin' anybody ever says to you has any more effect than a pinch of pigeon shit fallin' on a whited sepulcher and I already know that, see? I would be wastin' my breath.

That is a real nice lookin' sabre, but it needs the edge sharpened and a good point put on the tip. As it is now, it ain't good for much except moderately (so as not to do harm) spankin' one's gal (if she is into that kind of thing and likes it...which some do). If she ain't, though, then it would be little use at all. I don't see how they can figger to sell a sabre that ain't got a decent point on the end of it. It's too big to use as a butter knife.

No, sir! Sometimes I just shoot 'em, like Eiseley does. You'd be surprised how quick she can quiet Story Hour by firing just one bullet into the ceiling with her .45. And that creep-o the other day in the Library -- she nailed him at around 100 feet and, by using a ricochet shot, around a cornet and upstairs. She told the cops "Shucks, it was just like playin' pool, which I wouldn't know about because I'm a quiet, mild-mannered children's librarian from a small city in the Pacific Northwest." The cops gave HER their Expert Markswomanship Badge and the City Council gave her a standing ovation for "clearing one more creep and/or bum out of our fair and vibrant metropolis." The creep-o is recovering nicely in the local jail following treatment in the local hospital. He will probably be told to "get out of town" and given a ticket to San Diego, where we usually dump critters like that.

That could be legit, Rapparee. It's exactly what I would've written to them Corinthian bozos if I had been Paul. The New Testament is not bad, but I think the Old Testament really gets a bum rap these days even though there is a lotta good stuff in it. Just think what Joshua coulda done at Jericho if he'd had a few Tommy guns fer the troops!

Also, my vast knowledge of Scriptures (Christian, Islamic, etc.) tells me that there is no third letter of Paul to the Corinthians. I did find this, though I think it might be a bit suspect:

The Way Named Straight
Tarsus, Province of Syria

My Dear Corinthians:

I, Paul, by the will of God an Apostle, having written twice to you on several matters of great importance now find myself compelled to write a third time.

I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it any more.

SHAPE UP!

Paul, by the grace of God, Apostle to the Gentiles

You tell 'em, Jimmy.

Yup, the cupboard is startin' to look pretty bare.

I only need a few thousand a month, cos my needs are small and modest, me bein' a humble and God-fearin' primate.

Send the money to Box 199 at the main central downtown post office in Chicago or drop it off in a plain paper bag at the alley back of Duffy's Bar, 7 PM on Sundays. I'll be there.

But there is still hope, yes, as long as you exist you have Hope. But you must give over all your evil sinful tricks and repent. Yes, I say REPENT! Give all you have to the poor so that you are no longer tempted and hindered by the Things of This World! Remember what Paul says in Corinthians 3! Sell all you have and send to the Rev.

Amos, my dear, you must realize that once a fictional character is created, whether in literature, in film, or in any other medium, that character must remain consistently in character in order to be credible. This was the case with Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. It is the case with that rough hewn Chicago chimpanzee adventurer Chongo too. It has to be, don't you see? They simply are who they are, and that is all there is to it. If Little Hawk were to deviate from portraying his characters AS who they are, they would be justified in abandoning both him and this forum, and you would then have to find something else to object to.

And I'm sure you would... (knowing smile)
