I am just about done with Unscientific America, How Scientific Illiteracy Threatens Our Future by Chris Mooney and Sheril Kirshenbaum. It was published about 10 years ago. I wonder what the authors are thinking now.

Now I am reading Basically Bach. It is a collection of stories and facts about Johann Sebastian Bach. Even for someone not particularly interested in opera or classical music, it is pretty interesting. He didn't spend all his time writing music. He had two wives and twenty children.

I recently finished Last Man Out ... the story of the Springhill Mine Disaster. Unfortunately I read it while in the hospital so the nurses kept walking in to find me weeping ... lol. It makes you wish nobody ever discovered coal in the first place. I found out a lot of information, at the same time I do not think the author gave any credit or notice to the townfolk and in particular the rescuers.

Now I am reading The Trip to Echo Spring ... why writers drink.

I will be ready for some fiction after this .. maybe Harry Potter.

Just finished "Dunkirk" individual stories of soldier of the BEF. From when they arrived in france until the got back to England.
The story thought was funny is when a British fighter pilot belly landed on the beach. He was harassed by everyone and they keep asking "where is the RAF". Anyway they would not let him on a ship, so he snuck on the next ship. It was a mine sweeper or a cruiser. While the ship was firing it's 4 inch guns a aircraft and a sail was asking "where is the RAF" and he say "right there, the one you are shooting at"
