Politics

Just in time for him to win the Nobel Prize i finished up Al Gore's The Assault on Reason. I like it, although i wouldn't say i hadn't heard some of it before. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert so a great job of pointing out tv and specifically broadcast journalism are a huge part of the problem with our country. Gore's book covers two things essentially: George Bush sucks (and the various reasons why) and the citizenry is disconnected from politics due to being out of the conversation of government. He discusses how we were pushed aways and ways to reconnect the people to the government. And how much Bush sucks. a lot. so that was really nice to read. (truly, i enjoyed it. i am crazy liberal. i thought it was great)

I am still trying to get through The Road by Cormac Mccarthy. i am a little over halfway. it is such a fast read but i am not getting into it at all. so now i think instead of just trying to read it i'll read 10 or so pages at a time. If i can do that twice a day i'll finish in a week, just in time to take it back to the library.

Currently: watching Lost season 2 DVD.

  1. I definitely have Gore's book on my TBR list. I think he's a great man. I'm still disappointed that he lost the election!
