  • Glen Beck's "Agenda 21" Reads an awful lot like the manuscript I wrote in 92 to 98 on what life would be like in the Panic Society only much darker and primitive.

    Sample text of Panic Society housing attached as a pdf. A much more pleasant place to live then the dirty mat, dirt floor, no lights after dark, food cubes, and water rations of Agenda 21. Still, a life just as intrusive and micromanaged as ever.

    • Tired of getting my butt handed to me in chess so I have recently read three chess books. I understand the game much better now, but still have a long way to go. Have been playing against my ten year old son.

                  • I just finished HW Brands The Man who Saved the Union his new biography of Ulysses Grant and it is a good and informative read. I learned some new things about Grant, such as, when he was sent to the Pacific Coast after the Mexican War that he thought the Oregon territory was some of the best country on earth and he told his family that he was going to bring them out to live there permanently as soon he earned the money. So if Grant had had some luck 1861 might have found him a prosperous farmer in Oregon with little interest going east to fight.

                    Grant was also seriously concerned with the civil rights of blacks while president and wanted much fairer dealings with the Indians. And he was one of the first to identify the bullshit bomb that was the “Lost Cause”. I recommend this book especially for learning about US Grant’s pre and post Civil War life.

                          • Berlin Diary - William Shirer.

                            Having read a substantial number of WW2 books from soup to nuts over the years like a lot of us, I have a pretty solid handle on events, their time line and the various rationale behind them per various views. With in mind, it's fascinating to read Shirer's real time diary where you can appreciate his response to events within his context at the time....and you already know the nuances of the "real" story 70 years later!

                              And sorry I could not travel both
                              And be one traveler, long I stood

                              Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
                              I took the one less traveled by,
                              And that has made all the difference.
