    Finished David Kushner's "Masters of Doom" a few days ago. Pretty interesting. About the people behind id Software, creators of Doom, Quake, and the classis Wolfenstein 3-D.

    Deterring Democracy - Noam Chomsky

    Although it was written 11 years ago, there are some spooky parallels to what has been going on in Iraq & Afghanistan over the past two years in the first 60 pages.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Robert Hughes' "The Fatal Shore."

    Good to see somebody else who likes Chomsky's arguments.

    What's this about? I don't think I know the incident(s).

    It was of his favorites that died while under the care of several physicians. It's coming down to who really killed him, the doctors due to poor medical decisions among themselves, or did Stalin have a hand in it to help eliminate those that had fallen out of favor with him.

    Nice to see somebody else likes Robert W. Smith's books besides me.

    By the way, the new Russell Crowe movie, "Master and Commander," is taken from the first in a series of absolutely wonderful seafaring books, set around the Napoleonic Wars, by Patrick O'Brien. I can't say enough good things about them...

    "The Redneck Manifesto" by Jim Goad.

    Interesting read. The guy manages to say something that will offend everybody...but he makes some interesting points.
