The Best Land Under Heaven

I've always been fascinated by the Donner Party. Hence, I was interested in learning more about it. However, this presented a little bit of a challenge. Many of the accounts of their ill fated migration are not written by a historian. The Best Land Under Heaven is an exception. It is written by historian Michael Wallis. Thus,...

Blood and Thunder by Hampton Sides

Before there was a western book genre, there were the "Blood and Thunder" dime novels. The star of many of these fictitious works was Kit Carson. Hence, what better name for a historical look at this legend of the American West? While this book is about much more than one man, Kit Carson is the central character...

The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton

I'm sitting at my terminal in Springfield Missouri and they have FOX News on in the cafeteria. The show is The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton. It's a fairly new show on the network that started out billed as a populist program. However, it seems to have deteriorated into typical FOX News programming with a higher-than-normal occurrence...

What Hath God Wrought Audiobook Review

There is no punctuation mark in the title for the book. Author Daniel Walker Howe published it this way. It could be a question mark or an exclamation point. He left it to the reader to decide. Good, bad, or indifferent this 33 hour epic explores a defining period in American history. It either asks the question,...

Kids These Days

I don't know how it was in many of your homes. I just knew, understood and respected, "Grandpa's chair". Grandpa's chair was off limits. Even when he was away from his chair.

I’ve never been a cat guy, but…

So here's the story. I'm not a cat fan. More specifically, I don't like pets. Other people's pets are fine. However, one of the best things about modern civilization is our houses. Perhaps the best thing about them is the walls. Walls keep things out. Preferably animals. Unpopular view, I know, but that's the way I see...

What Really Happened? Casey Anthony Part 3

For this article I will make claims that are sourced in 2 books. The first is Imperfect Justice by Jeff Ashton, one of the prosecutors in the case against Casey Anthony. The second is Presumed Guilty by Jose Baez, the defense attorney in the case. I will source the claims by naming the author when I make...
