Was expecting so much more after his last book, but this is Thor's worst outing to date (yes, worse than the Athena Project). A good plotline destroyed by silly pandering to the Glen Beck-WND crowd by including untrue conspiracies about President Oba ...more

I love to read books. Okay, that’s no surprise to most people who know me. My favorite topics are history, science and philosophy. When a well-written book combines all 3 subjects, it makes for great reading. And that’s the case with “Survival of the ...more

Another classic from the interesting mind of Carl Hiaasen. Sometimes, I think his characters are too crazy to believe, then I read the news headlines from Washington DC and Florida. Looks like he isn't exaggerating after all. :-)

“You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don't help.”
Bill Watterson

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Elie Wiesel
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel
