    Really, is this pun going to surface every time Kant is mentioned? I don't see people saying "Locke up your daughters" or "what a Hume-orous fellow!"

    I heard Allison's book is a nice way of circumventing Kant's piss poor writing so you can actually focus on grasping the ideas, but it presents an interpretation that is less than common and maybe even apologist. Still, I've heard great things and plan on getting it myself.

    We All Got History: The Memory Books of Amos Webber by Nick Salvatore (Columbia prof. IIRC). The title is stupid but it is quite good so far.

    reading both Common Wealth by jeffrey sachs and Nuclear Terrorism by Graham Allison. Very intense issues since i'm looking to be more informed. Still the entertainment factor is still there, abeit in impossible idealism.

    I'm in reread mode: 1491 and Gotham.


    - B


    1491 is a really great book. I had to read it for an Anthropology class, and was very impressed.

    Bill Kauffman's Dispatches from the Muckdog Gazette. It's excellent, as was his Ain't My America which I read several months ago. He has a unique brand of libertarianish romantic conservatism that I find delightful, even when I disagree with him.
