Just finished the Al Franken book. Very funny, well written, slightly depressing because of all the lame stuff right-wing nutcases do.
Just started American Dynasty by Kevin Philips. Not that well written, but very well researched. Depressing because I was not born into the andover, yale, skull and bones tradition.
I coulda been somebody! I coulda been a corrupted politician, instead of a midle manager, which is what I am!
Im also reading (but have put to the side for the other books) The People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn. Now this is REALLY depressing. Also, Im reading a biography of Henry Clay. This one is not depressing at all.
And for my birthday, I got a whole bunch of gift certificates for new books!
