It all started with Nixon.

Those were the days of the supposed need for "law and order" and the White House crew that had no respect whatsoever for the law decided that the path to federal action which would impress the American electorate was by way

Clif and 174 other people liked Sarah's review of Atonement:
Atonement by Ian McEwan
"It's like To Kill A Mockingbird. Only, instead of a flawed but relatable protagonist, we have a protagonist vilified beyond all reason. Instead of a persecuted minority, we have a horny young man. And instead of Atticus Finch, we have...Ian McEwan..." Read more of this review »

Return to Mt. Snagra by Tyan Wyss
"This is a lovely book which tells the story of an ordinary eleven-year-old girl called Mattie (not pretty, not ugly) and her one-handed friend Pete.

The iPhone is a wondrous thing. People rave about it, but would anyone consider writing a poem about it? That's very unlikely. Poetry still exists, but it has been almost entirely subsumed into musical lyrics given to us by the relative few who write ...more
