Daily Thoughts 03/13/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Lasers, Death Rays, and the Long, Strange Quest for the Ultimate Weapon.  I was reading about Edward Teller who invented the hydrogen bomb.  He also supported the idea of the nuclear bomb pumped lasers.  There is a certain extreme in Teller who also made plans to create harbors in Alaska using nuclear bombs. Tellers plans for bomb pumped x-ray lasers were part of the Strategic Defensive Initiative or "Star Wars."

This morning, I checked the displays and the gift books.

I also spent some time discussing programming.

I checked the 600s, the oversize, and some of the fiction books in the mezzanine.

I looked through two copies of Publishers Weekly.  I have a copy of the latest Ingram Advance to read through.
