Just started some new books...though it is for juveniles, I'm reading Rush Limbaugh's "Rush Revere" series... got the entire set.  Rush's command of the language, command of history, command of storytelling was without compare.  Reading "Rush Revere" puts one in the moment.  Great stuff.

I am also reading two versions of "American Marxism"... Mark Levin's book and similarly titled book by William Reeves.  Both are total anti-Marxism, pro-American.  

All great reads, so far.  

Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

Well I finished THE REBELLION OF THE HANGED in one day. Now after reading three B. Traven books in a row I don't know what else to start. B. Traven is a hard act to follow.
