Today's featured comment
Today's featured comment comes from somebody who calls himself G2 and wants to know my current reading list:
G2's take: Mr. Schmuck, I just read your side blurb there for the first time I believe. Reading any good history or biographies at the moment?
Peter's reply: Thanks for asking. I'm reading the David Halberstam history of the Korean War right now, which I got on the bargain rack at Barnes. It's going slow, but I'm interested because my dad was a career Marine during WWII and Korea (though I believe he was in Japan during the Korean conflict). I'm also trying to get through Dickens' Bleak House, but it's killing me.
If you want a recommendation, one of the best biographies I have ever read -- and it's about 10 years old -- is A. Scott Berg's Lindbergh. Really fascinating look at the early aviation era and a very complicated American hero.
