"The Second Bill of Rights: FDR's Unfinished Revolution And Why We Need It More Than Ever" (2004) by Cass R. Sunstein. Regardless of one's own critiques of the New Deal revolution, this book still makes you wonder about economic rights, and the rule of law (in particular, the U.S. Constitution). And given the current fiscal situation, this book opens [some] perspective to what is going on now, and what happened then. Sunstein asks some very interesting questions concerning the U.S. Constitution (such as, why is there no specific mention of economic rights?) and looks abroad (both domestic and foreign constitutions) to provide some examples. Whatever your view, it's a good read.

Dustin, I love your name.


Dante's inferno is my current read. For the umpteenth time, and it is in fact, a splendid, fabulous, stellar book.
I felt like a race horse in a world without racetracks or a champion college footballer suddenly confronted by Wall Street and a business suit, his days of glory shrunk to a little gold cup on his mantel with a date engraved on it like a tombstone.

I've heard a lot of good things about the first one
Decisions to decisions are made and not bought, but I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot. I guess not.

There is quite a bit of profanity, but I'm sure you wouldn't mind.

Cather in the Rye used to be a required reading book by highschools..

My how the culture of todays society has dwindled down to pornography and drugs.
