I'll get to yesterday's activities in my next post. Over the last few days, I read the comic book The Unwritten #21 - the series is about fiction, how it affects the world, and how the world affects it, I think. Anyway, the protagonist is presently stuck in Moby Dick with all that suggests.

I also took a book out of the library, thinking that it might be interesting. It was called House of War: The Pentagon and the Disastrous Rise of American Power. I thought it was going to be a history of the Pentagon, but it struck me as mostly a diatribe against the military-industrial complex. I'm not a historian, so I won't guess at its accuracy, but I will say that it didn't engage me, so I dumped the book and returned it to the library without finishing it.
