Daily Thoughts 10/13/2013 and 10/14/2014
I spent a little time updating my home machine for digital media. I loaded the Kindle for PC program and read the e-book, Red Ink Inside the High Stakes Politics of the Federal Budget by David Wessel. It is a primer on the different reasons that the budget is a mess. It writes about the different people involved in the process from Leon Panetta to Lew Archer. What it clearly says is that the budget is a fiscal mess and needs to be cleaned up. I think the author is trying to be neutral and paint a picture more than take sides.
I looked through the different services available for digital media through the Westchester Library System.http://www.westchesterlibraries.org/listen-read/ Total Boox is the system which specifically says it is both iPad and Android focused http://www.totalboox.com/wls. Most of the systems are android focused.
I also have been reading a little more of Bleeding Edge by Thomas Pynchon. The author includes the attack on the World Trade Center, 9/11 as part of the plot of the novel. It gives the story an edge. I finished reading Bleeding Edge Today. I enjoyed the story. It does not feel completed, but it had a very Manhattan feel to it.
