Pastures of Heaven

June 21, 2013   

I've always been a slow reader. Peaked at 175 words a minute in high school. Finishing a book is an accomplishment for me.

I always liked John Steinbeck, at least the stuff before WWII. After that he started to think of himself as a Great Man and his writing went downhill.

Pastures of Heaven always had special meaning to me, twelve tales of pious mediocrity ruining things for everyone, so much like the Republican party is doing nowadays, and has been doing since the election of Reagan.
