    Re: What are you reading now?

    Reading "Don't Think of an Elephant" by George Lakoff (can't get off of politics these days). Lakoff is a Berkeley linguist who's analyzed the way conservatives and progressives frame debates (cut to the short - the Republicans won).

    The crux is that most conservative operate under a "strict father" frame and most liberal/progressives under a "nurturant parent" frame.

    Fascinating stuff and a quick read. Highly recommended.

    As of right now, I'm reading ochre's previous post.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien. The prelude to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
