  • “Next term is the time for the supreme court to go quiescent – this term and several past terms have proven that the Court is now causing more harm (division) to our democracy than good by deciding hot button cases that the Court has the power to avoid. As the kids say, it is time for the Court to stfu.” (and with a link to “stfu” on Urban Dictionary)

Every book teaches a lesson, even if the lesson is only that one has chosen the wrong book.

    I’ve read nine of them but several were way back during college days when I was especially looking for that type of literature. I recently tried to reread Stranger in a Strange Land but somehow it wasn’t as good as I thought it was many years ago. I happen to be reading now I Capture the Castle which is excellent. I also liked Stoner which I recently read for the first time.

    Oh–as a suggestion for an addition to the “cult” novels, I would submit The Monkey Wrench Gang by Edward Abbey.
