Over the years, reporters for the WSJ have uncovered all kinds of nefarious activites. The trial has been interesting. She deserves 20 years.

Just finished "Tracing Time - Seasons of Rock Art on the Colorado Plateau". Craig Childs is a very good writer who goes out and explores the areas where long gone Indian cultures lived.

I just finished The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande. Subtitled How to Get Things Right. Highly suggested.

About half way through volume 1 of the 4-volume biography of Robert E Lee by Douglass Southall Freeman. After that I’ve got the 3 volume set of Lee's Lieutenants: A Study in Command, by the same author.

Yep, those will keep me busy for a little while.

Very light reading, but I've been getting into the Stone Barrington stories by Stuart Woods.

Finished Bad Blood, and am on to Sons of Valor, the first book in a series in the same universe as the Tier One series, which I have discussed here:

Tier One Book Series

Man, Bad Blood was crazy. But I've experienced some of the same behaviors in jobs I've had in the IT industry. The worst part is that there were patients who relied on their data that died or had other conditions result from that bad data, and that they have no recompense.

I recently finished Down River by John Hart. It won the Edger Award for 2008. It was well worth the read.

Death Comes for the Archbishop. Willa Cather. Set in New Mexico from 1850 to almost 1900. Story of two French Catholic missionaries who establish a diocese in Santa Fe. I thought it was really good.

Tonight starting In the Blood, the new Jack Carr thriller.

Years ago while watching Boardwalk Empire, I decided that I'd have to read Sinclair Lewis' "Free Air". Just finished reading it on Kindle and greatly enjoyed it. It seemed to be to be both oddly dated and very contemporary.

Just started Clay Martin's "Prairie Fire". Sort of a manual for rural prep for a civil war.
