I am reading "humans" by Robert J. Sawyer (fiction) and "Inside the Third Reich" by Albert Speer.
Speer had 20 years to think about and write the book and he does take a suprising amount of responsibility for his actions.
What are you all reading these days?

I just finished 'Why the West Has Won', by Victor Davis Hanson. Thoroughly enjoyable, which unfortunately meant it only lasted me a week. Before that I read one by Carl Sagan, which I didn't find quite as enjoyable as when I read it in highschool. I'm thinking about picking up that Stephen Harper book by Paul Wells, or maybe another book from VDH... any recommendations?

French Kiss by Chantelle Herbert. Amazing insite into what makes Quebec tick.

The part on why the NDP can never get a seat in QC is worth the price of the book alone.

Every page has a new revelation. I always wanted a window into the mind of this province. Used to use Le blog de Polyscopique but there hasn't been a new post in a number of months.

"The Politically Incorrect Guide to the South (And Why it Will Rise Again)" by Clint Johnson. If you're interested in pulling back the curtain on one of the largest cases of historical revisionism to date, then this is the book for you!

John Stossell "Myths, Lies and Downright stupidity."

The book is really worth the read!! I couldn't put it down and read it all yesterday.

I do not agree with everything he says and you won't either, but you will see the need to talk about a great many things.

Also, he says something fascinating about his experience in writing consumer material: The conservatives may disagree, but will talk, (Stossell is Libertarian). The liberals refuse to talk, they just yell. According to Stossell, the difference is stark. I tend to agree with him.
