This book intrigued me as I‘m interested in the psychology of gangs and how they function. Around 1965, Hunter S. Thompson spent about two years hanging out with the Hell‘s Angels motorcycle gang. This was a time period in which the Hell‘s Angels were in their relative height of mayhem, violence, and destruction. This book didn‘t provide what I was hoping to learn. #MountTBR

Another great book on how the media drives public policy and the divisions in the country. This one focuses on Wokeism. Most of what I read makes very good point. However I‘m burnt out.

By this time most are aware of journalism‘s role in dividing the country. Media that now caters to its audience rather than presenting unbiased news. CNN caters to its base. FOX NEWS caters to its base. MSNBC caters to its base. And we are left with a nation who thinks it‘s own people are the enemy. This book makes the pint very well. However, I didn‘t finish the whole book. Because I‘m sick of the subject and I sick of the hatred.

This is both a personal memoir and a tell-all about what Margaret Sullivan witnessed/experienced during her four decades in journalism as a reporter, editor and columnist for the Buffalo News, New York Times and Washington Post. As a former newspaper journalist myself, I enjoyed her reminiscences and completely agree with her warnings about the crucial role the media needs to play in protecting democracy from candidates like Trump.

Megabooks Great review! 2mo

Will be a highlight of my Key West trip. On my bucket list was Captain Tony‘s, the original site of Sloppy Joe‘s where Hemingway hung out and where Martha Gellhorn met him (google this bad ass woman). On every stool around the bar is the name of a famous actor or musician. All men. I asked why there wasn‘t one stool with a woman‘s name on it? Why not Martha Gellhorn? Bartender: I don‘t lose sleep over that. Me: that‘s lame. ⬇️

SamAnne I pretended to fart and enjoy it on my stool—Sean Connery‘s. And I was kicked out. On a slow afternoon sober. Hilarious. Am proud of being 86‘d! 86 the patriarchy! 2mo

Visiting Hemingway‘s house in Key West. One of his 6-toed cats! So many cats on the grounds! Tagging the excellent biography of Martha Gellhorn, his bad ass 3rd wife who was the only female reporter to report on D-Day from NotmandyI Beach in WWII she eventually dumped Hemingway‘s drunken ass.

SamAnne There are 58 cats on the property! 2mo

We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.
