Another academic scene author has crossed my path. Why haven't I read any David Carkeet before? I fell across The Error of Our Ways recently, and the drollery and situational complications are both entralling and entertaining. Set in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri; a suburb with academic connections, the story is two threads so far, moving toward one another with inevitable hubbub to follow. More critique when I have finished.

Dortmunder is my current ebook. This time it's What's the Worst that Could Happen and I think the answer is coming up in a few more chapters. Again, Dortmunder has himself in a complex situation, but this time it is of his own making. Can't wait to see if he extricates himself, May and Andy without any lasting ramifications. Again, more to follow. I may have to actually buy the rest of the Dortmunder books in print! Wait - there is always ILL. It is too bad they aren't all in ebook form.

Bill of Rights and the Constitution...

Both of these are now threatened by the tactics of the administration, under the guise of "protection." Last night I saw Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin on "The Daily Show". He is very courageous. Read his site. See what he says about presidential responsibility.
