Book of the Month for May

I love books. They're fun, educational, and ideal weapons for smashing bugs and similarly sized objects.

Sorry for the delay in blogging, but it's been a brutally busy stretch. There was Father's Day, a wedding weekend, and an insane amount of work to be done before going on vacation. Honestly, how come preparing for a vacation feels like preparing for final exams?

So, anyway, I'm just now getting back into the swing of things and I've stumbled into a world of death. Sad to hear about Dennis Hopper and Gary Coleman, huh? Hopper has a pretty storied career, but Coleman's life was just sad and sordid and included running for California's governor in 2004.

With that said, the book of the month is Hank Stuever's "Off Ramp," which includes a stunning profile about Coleman on the campaign trail. You can read the entire piece right here.

Read in peace. More stuff coming soon.
