    Putting Herr Hitler and Fiends on Hold...

    I finished The Valley of Creation by Edmond Hamilton a couple of nights ago, have started Up The Line, am dabbling in Thomas Merton (A Year With) and New York Noir. NY Noir is a 5 books-in-one compilation of short stories. Starting with Brooklyn Noir, each of the 5 boroughs of the city makes one book apiece and it was written over the period of a decade or so. A free sample in EPUB or MOBI is available here.

    The great danger in movements to the Left is that the protagonists of the movement are so wrapped up with the end that the means becomes secondary.

    Now on "The Screwtape Letters" by C. S. Lewis (of Chronicles of Narnia fame).

    Adapted recently into a play too.

    Putting Joe Torre on hold.

    Finished "Revelations" by Elaine Pagels and "Brooklyn Noir 2" (various authors) - highly recommend both.

    Presently listening to an audiobook of "The Problem of Pain" by C. S. Lewis. 2/3rds thru and excellent so far. To any who are of an open mind, may I suggest this to be read or listened to.

    Anthony Bourdain, "A Cook's Tour."

    After Tolstoy, I also read "Ham Radio's Technical Culture," by Krysten Haring and Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential," the latter of which I had to stop reading in bed because I laughed so hard that it disturbed my wife.

    That's pretty twisted and funny stuff. So now you'll have good responses for 'IzE as well?
