The Wordy Shipmates

The Wordy Shipmates, by Sarah Vowell, is the first i've read by her that i don't want to rave over. It isn't bad! It is just about Puritans and their nitpicky fights between themselves. She makes some good parallels between what the Puritans thought about coming to the colonies and America's intentions abroad. that whole "we'll be greeted as liberators" thing goes back hundreds of years. The intricacies of the Pequot War were pretty interesting in a spectator way. I just didn't get into it so much as her previous ones. I give it a 5.

currently: wondering if Al Franken is really a Senator now or if there will be more legal battles.
