Random Commuter Thoughts

Want to spread a little joy in the morning? Read your new copy of P.J. O'Rourke's Peace Kills on the Metro. Be sure you're standing up so everybody can see the cover. Laugh grimly at the appropriate places. And be sure to smile in polite puzzlement when you get sniffy looks from the aging moonbat sitting in front of you.

BTW, if you haven't read this one yet, it appears that Peej is getting back into his earlier form. In my humble opinion, he had crested with All the Trouble In The World, started to slide a bit with Eat the Rich and, well, tanked with CEO of the Sofa. This book is much more like his pre-Trouble period. And that is good.

Never read any of those. In fact the only O'Rourke books I've read are Give War a Chance and Parliament of Whores. If you're saying this new one is comparable to them, I'm in.

Give All the Trouble a try, too. Best book he's written to date, IMHO.

AtTitW is the peak? The humor parts and actual politics discussion was good, but the rest was actually pretty boring.

But, since everything that is boring is probably informative, what did I learn?

Apparently, Somallian women are very hot. Except, for, you know, that whole malnutrition thing.

Also, hats are really, really stupid. I did not know this. I figured some were, since they are, but I thought that there were some good hats.
