Si vis pacem, para bellum

Lego Clone Wars, from Point Blank Media
I've been remiss in blogging recently for a lot of reasons.  Partially it's because I've been busy at work.  Partially it's because it's summer and the list of summer chores around the house never ends.  But mostly it's because of LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.
