gnome guy - thanks for the tip on the book, I will look for it. I am on my sixth book about Islam. Fascinating subject and I find that most people that I talk to know almost nothing about it. We ought to know who are enemy is and what they are all about.

in continuing my goal to read all the works of john steinbeck: "the sea of cortez: a leisurely journal ..." most interesting. early on had a discussion of the human significance of boats in our consciousness--nice!

finished "the glitter dome" trashy cop drama.


msc, there's a new book featured by Human Events: "the truth about Muhammad." summarizes what is actually known about the founder of islam.

In the continuation of my study of Islam, I am reading Islam Unveiled by Robert Spencer. Excellent book. I am about half through the book and I sense that Spencer blames a lot of the problems of Muslims on their total reliance on the Qur'an to the exclusion of all other study. Which leaves them intellectually way back in the middle ages.

I'm kind of reading 2 books now.

"Our Little War - the 1139th Military Police Company in Baghdad" which is written by an old acquaintance of mine. He just got it published & sent me a copy.

and

"Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do - the absurdity of consensual crimes in our free country" by Peter McWilliams.

Both are very interesting books.
