Ha! I really laughed at the crossed fingers of Iraq Exit Plan.

You always find the best funnies! I really look forward to Sunday mornings so I can read your funnies and so I can watch The Sopranos on A&E!

The Sopranos and Nomie: a good combination for regularity and mental health. hee hee

What's "free" about the "free" world? It sure as hell isn't Obama! Thank God he's on his way out. He knows it...

00dozo: Oh, yeah. But he sure gets a lost of media, doesn't he?

Quirks: Aw, you say the most wonderful things. Thanks, I'm glad you enjoy them. Editorial cartoonists often best express an issue, putting their finger on the heart of the matter. I love them.

Don: I'm really surprised how low his popularity has sunk. It's a far cry from when he was first elected isn't it?

Hey, just noticed the book thing in your sidebar. Haven't read "The Given Day" yet but I just completed Lehane's Kenzie-Gennaro series.

Great writing.

Chris: Haven't read that. I've done Mystic River and Shutter Island - both outstanding.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
