    I'm reading Ha$h Tag by Dave Schaefer

    The fascinating (true) tale of the largest drug smuggling incident in Canadian history, a half billion dollars worth of hash lost in the St. Lawrence river...and so far I only recognize a couple of the players involved...

    Back into the original canon of Sherlock Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - just started re-reading 'The Return of Sherlock Holmes', Conan Doyle's acquiescence to the worldwide readership at the time who rebelled at his having killed S.H. off in 'The Final Problem' some years earlier. It seems as though four or five new Holmes novels or short story collections are released every month these days - some, like the novels of James Lovegrove and Bonnie MacBird, and the anthologies edited by Laurie King and Leslie Kllinger, are first class reading and do full justice to the character. I've got several shelves of new stories that I've collected and haven't taken the time to read as yet, but once I've re-grounded myself in Sir Arthur's writings I will start in on them.

    I have been reading Tier One a Thriller Series. I actually heard a podcast with the authors on, of all places, STRATFOR.

    It is well written and entertaining.

    Haven't found too much that has piqued my curiosity lately, so was reading basic 'brain in neutral'. James Patterson, The 15th Affair.
    When an argument cannot be sustained on proven facts, devolve to opinions and anger, that always works.
