Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

So, what book did I finish in time to celebrate Independence Day?

Osprey Campaign #231: Nez Perce 1877: The Last Fight. Not the most pleasant of topics to review about American History. This discusses the fights between the US Army and the various tribes of Nez Perce as they were forced onto the reservations, leaving the lands open to colonization. Not something to be so proud of, IMHO.

I hurried home last night so that we could go to a comedy club (Flappers in Burbank). forestcats wanted to see a Native American comedian; IIRC, name of Jim Ruehl, an Ojibwe from Wisconsin. He was in the middle of the lineup; he was pretty good. As is not unusual in such clubs, some were very good, some were good and some were poor. They asked if we'd like to see any particular comic in the future, so I said "David Trachtenberg". Home very late, slept through alarm clock. I have a housecall and a hospital to go to; must be off...
