A Summer Reading List

Following a tip from a secret source in central Wisconsin, I slipped over to this site to view the results of a poll run by The National Conservative Weekly on the 10 most harmful books of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Anyone want to start a book club? And for all you construction junkies - you know who you are - work on our kitchen, dining room and basement has begun. I have my own dumpster! More construction photos are posted at threadingwater for GHIW (who is missing all the fun at home because a week with friends in Maine sounded like more fun) and anyone else who wants to follow this project.

Marx and Hitler and Kinsey, oh my! Not exactly my kind of beach reading, but hey. What a stupid idea for a list, uncovers them as book burners par excellence and otherwise accomplishes nothing. Keep it up, resistance!

Yeah, they really are a bunch of nincompoops. Top 10 most harmful books and "Bridges of Madison County" doesn't even get an honorable mention? Wasn't that offensive to everyone?

I must say, a few on this list caused a great deal of mischief, but certainly no more than, say, The Bible.
Hope all is well,
