You're proving #2 for the reason you said.
I guess it could have been clearer and for that reason, it was presumptuous of me.
Mainly I think the...
Hey Peder - thank you for reading and for your comment.
I remember a few exchanges we had a long time ago.

The Sheeple Meme
by Marc Friedlander
There is a "meme" or a "trope" (or whatever the hell it's called), of mindless sheeple with their eyes glued...
Hi there. My screen name is Libre, and I used to frequent this forum - some years ago. Since then a lot of things have happened in my life....
Finally finished with Great Expectations.
Can't say I flew through it. No, not an easy read for me. But a rewarding one. The lessons of the...
I'm reading Great Expectations.
After an initial period of difficulty adjusting to the Victorian style of pros, and with some disincliment to...
I haven't been on this forum for a long time.
I was just clicking around, and well, here I am again.

I liked this one:
Friday by Robert A. Heinlein
It is definitely a fantasy, and definitely has a strong female character.
If you like Heinlein...

What he was, was a great visionary.
A true genius, truly a man ahead of his time....

God is definitely portrayed as a force for good.
But as you might expect, it's not all that simple.
God has a sense of humor - that's for sure....
A wonderful book by Roland Merullo.
I'm not quite done reading it yet - but I'm giving it 5 of 5 stars.
I won't write about the story line -...
I've read about 5 or 6 of his books, and I think most of them suffer from the same malady. A fascinating premise, a great beginning, and then a...
Some books that scared the crap out of me:
The Girl in a Swing - by Richard Adams (gifted writer of the more well known Watership Down)
So is Into The Wild.
Read the book years ago, just saw the movie.
Very well done.
Hello - been away (from the forum for awhile).
Yes, it was a cruise package tour.
It was amazing - but all it did was make me want to really see...
There are such good and bad arguments on both sides, I'd feel comfortable taking either position.
Less gun violence; fewer gun accidents;...
I'm reading Alaska, by James Michener.
At first, I found his style to be sparse, which is odd, considering the book is like 1000 pages. But once...
