Letitia is on page 275 of 636 of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Going good. Yay on Chapter 19. Harry's in the Triwizard Tournament. I wonder how he will go in the first task?
Catch Me If You Can by Frank W. Abagnale
"Few have ever really been fooled more than once in their lifetime. And Frank took advantage of that. He saw what the world was offering and cut his way to the top. Wow, prison life in Europe and still wanting more after that; he got what he wanted..." Read more of this review »
Freedom from Fear by David M. Kennedy
"This book covers U.S. history from the 1929 stock market crash, through the Great Depression until the end of WWII. The writing is excellent and even though this is a 900 page tome, it is still largely a summary of the events that unfolded in this..." Read more of this review »

Jeffrey Keeten shared a highlight from
Russian Roulette by Michael Isikoff
His two days there would later become much discussed because of allegations that he engaged in weird sexual antics while in Russia—claims that were not confirmed. But this visit was significant because it revealed what motivated Trump the most: the opportunity to build more monuments to himself and to make more money. Trump realized that he could attain none of his dreams in Moscow without forging a bond with the former KGB lieutenant colonel who was the president of Russia.

Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another What! You
“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Karl Marx
“A specter is haunting Europe—the specter of Communism. All the powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this specter; Pope and Czar, Metternich and Guizot, French radicals and German police spies.

Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as Communistic by its opponents in power? Where the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of Communism, against the more advanced opposition parties, as well as against its reactionary adversaries?

Two things result from this fact.

I. Communism is already acknowledged by all European powers to be in itself a power.

II. It is high time that Communists should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Specter of Communism with a Manifesto of the party itself.”
Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto
