  • “Sharpe on Trade”

    At one point in “Sharpe’s Tiger”, the engaging historical page-turner I just finished, Bernard Cornwell’s alpha-male English private hero and a wise old Scottish colonel have the following 1799 exchange while imprisoned in a Southern Indian jail: “All in all, I think, and judging him by the standards...
  • The Early Rebates Are in and…
