Daily Thoughts 09/03/2014

I am reading a thriller by Oliver North and Bob Hamer called Counterfeit Lies.  The book is dedicated to Roger Ailes CEO of Fox News.  The writing and the thinking is on the political right.  Some of it is very entertaining if a bit off the edge.  There is member of Hezbollah who has sneaked through the Mexican border.  The main character is a special agent for the FBI and is an ex-marine.  The characters are well fleshed out, but at points seem stereotypical.

The action sequences are very well done and the attitude is very gung ho with a genuine dislike of bureaucrats and politicians.  The criminals and villains are genuinely dislikable.  It is well written escapist literature.  It may be disagreeable for some people

I checked the Twitter and Facebook this morning for the library.  I also spent some time working on ordering material today.  Today is the first day for the Poetry program from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. tonight.  We also have a Microsoft Excel class from 5:30 p.m to 7:30 p.m.
