Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

I finished another book, yesterday, called The Kitchen Readings: Untold Stories of Hunter S. Thompson which, except for the final tale of his ashes being spread, didn't add much to what I read earlier. This book of anecdotes written by an acquaintance of Thompson's and the local sheriff didn't try to analyze him at all, as opposed to the book by Wenner, his editor at Rolling Stone. It might be a good first approximation for anyone who hasn't read anything else by the author, but I wouldn't recommend the book at all.

I cleared a number of items off the DVR last night, and then we watched episode three of Foyle's War from Netflix. The latter is pretty solidly good stuff. We've been watching a significant amount of NBC coverage of the Olympics, which must be a nice rest for the Netflix crew. I'm sure lots of folks have slowed their pace on their queues during this period.
