If there's anyone out there who is actually waiting for that post, I will have it and the Boortz one up eventually and soon, but I've found it nigh impossible to pull myself away from the books I have buried myself in lately. So the negative is this reading binge has delayed those posts (and I still haven't gotten around to finalizing the post on Our Endangered Country). The positive is that I should be able to generate some blogging material from these books.
If you want to read along, I just started Are We Rome: The Fall of an Empire and the Fate of America by Cullen Murphy. See Walter Isaacson's New York Times review for more info on the book.
