Reduce, reuse, recycle, resist

This all is a hodge podge.
I just finished reading Herman Wouk’s
A Hole in Texas, which was an impulse pick from the recent/popular/librarian’s-pick shelf.
In the picture on the back of the dust jacket he looks almost ninety. Sure enough, I just looked him up and he was born 1915. Do I know a nonagenarian when I see one, or what? (My mom is turning 90 next month.)
So anyway, an apt description of this book comes from the rake–compulsively readable, middlebrow. Just the sort of thing that I go in for. The middle brow part are long stretches of exposition about physics.
There is more that I would like share, but I am off to the Metrodome to see the Twins play Kansas City.
