I've hardly read this year, but I'm getting a little bit in on a visit to my family in the forest! The cicadas and birds are singing and the dog is napping and I can feel my brain slowing down. 🌳🐦😌🐕🌲

Inspired by the idea that American Democracy is on the verge of ending. Definitely written from a specific point of view. It‘s an interesting look at a fictional behind the scenes look at political campaigns. The book was ok. I could put the book down. Which is often the best compliment for a book, “I couldn‘t put it down”. I could.

Bageant describes school shootings as "rare and declining." To be fair, this book was published in 2007, and sadly, Bageant died in 2011, long before Sandy Hook, Uvalde, etc. Other than his views on gun control (which I'm confident that someone as smart as Bageant would have eventually altered had he lived long enough), I agree with him on everything else. The closing chapter American Hologram is brilliant. #2024Book18 ?✝️

It's gotten worse. This book was published in 2007. I recently read that 56% of Americans are now functionally illiterate. By the way, for me, the fact that there are so many stupid people out there who are wildly successful is single-handedly the most painful thing about being alive.

...poor diabetic person manages to survive insulin shock and lives to make the payments on the credit card he used for that emergency room visit, he is welcome to join a hundred others like him down at the community center for a wellness talk and a free brochure paid for by a leading pharmaceutical company.
