"The man who mistook his wife for a hat" is great. It is dated but exemplifies several character sketches of people with physiological deformities and actual physical damage that can be proven. When it was written I am not sure if Catscans even existed but then most the examples that they had of survivors were dead long before the technology existed as well. Great choice.The man with the railroad spike through his head is really interesting.

Currently reading "Inside The Jihad" by Omar Nasiri, which is not his real name. I am only just getting into it but the introduction tells me that Omar Nasiri was a spy who inflitrated the Al Qaeda organization for several years. Very interesting story so far. He tells a whole lot about himself, where he was born, his family, where he worked, that he is Arabic and a Muslim and then he says that none of that is true except that he is muslim.

Just finished Gonzo: The Life of Hunter S. Thompson. Could've been a contender but the high life brought him down. Remember when, 10 or so years ago, he came to KU? Epic!

We went to see the greatest in Rap groups like Don fudgepacker and the monkeys. I am so sorry I had a misspent youth listening to Rappers like them butthey seemed to be the most convienent acts to be around. It was almost like they chased me around to see their show.There was always something fishy about their act but most always said they smelt a rat instead.I donut know. What did you do????????
