Latest Reading

I've been continuing to read a lot of Stephen King: 'Salem's Lot, The Stand (his best, IMO), Four Past Midnight, Dreamcatcher, Pet Sematary and the first four books of The Dark Tower series.  In between, I've also read True Grit, Fight Club and a couple others.  With a new big screen TV and digital cable (plus a Wii) I certainly read a bit less than before.

It's time to go back to some non-fiction now.  There are new(er) books by Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens I've been meaning to read, plus I recently acquired an illustrated version of The Origin of Species.

Can you possibly get any lower than this?

Heh. John McCain's daughter, Meghan, recently said, "Michele Bachmann in my opinion is no better than a poor man’s Sarah Palin."  Given that you can't get much lower than Palin, that is about as bad (good?) an insult as someone can give.  Although, "Christine O'Donnell in my opinion is no better than a poor man's Michele Bachmann" might be worse.
