NYT: Top Ten Books of 2006

NY Times Top Ten Books of 2006

No, I haven't read any of them!

On my short list are Absurdistan, The Looming Tower, Mayflower, The Omivore's Dilemma, and The Places In Between. I probably should read all of them.

Hey! I just read George Soros' new book"The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of the War on Terror". What a magnificent thinker! How can those right-wing bloviards like Bill O'Reilly disparage him as "far left" etc?? He is for open societies! He established institutions that opened up the Soviet Bloc and broke down the Iron Curtain! For goodness sake!! He is a democrat with a small d!! One can only deduce that the right wing bloviards are anti-democratic and closer to plutocratic, or worse fascist.
