    1.) In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson - This is a book about the US Ambassador to Germany in 1933/34. Larson is a great writer, and the book was a very quick read. I recommend this book highly.

    2.) The I Chong by Tommy Chong - I am really sorry that I wasted time reading this book. It's the story of Tommy Chongs problems with the Feds. He makes going to Prison sound really awesome. :wtf:

    3.) Eisenhower: 1956 by David Nichols - This was another really good book. It focuses primarily on Eisenhowers foreign policy, specifically the Suez Canal incident of 1956. Highly recommended.

    4.) 500 Days by Kurt Eichnwald - Best book that I have read in a long time. This is a focus on the 500 days that followed the 9/11 attacks, and how this government responded. Highest recommendation.

    See, Dave, I took no part in this.

    I chuckled a bit, but I took no part in it.

    I read a bunch of newspapers too, Ted. :grad:

    This is one of those benefits of not being bothered by a wife and kids.

    You ever read any Chuck Klostermann? I read 3 of his books now. Fargo Rock City and IV were pretty good. IV reminded me of HST a little bit.
