    Arch-swindler Moist von Lipwig never believed his crimes were hanging offenses, until he found himself with a noose around his neck, dropping through a trap door, and falling into...a government job? Getting the moribund Postal Service up and running again, however, may be an impossible task. Worse, the new Postmaster could swear the mail is talking to him.

    Overall

    This is a great book, but you really have to be familiar with the Discworld series to appreciate it. I don't know why the most recent books are not identified as part of the Discworld series, since picking one up randomly and trying to read it would be a maddening experience.

    "Karin", who gave this book one star, most likely did not read the previous 28 books before trying this one, thus the very negative review. It's a real shame, since this is a great story, once you know what to expect from it.

  • Bush Country: How Dubya Became a Great President While Driving Liberals Insane

    George W. Bush arrived in the White House an untested governor with an unfortunate habit of tripping over his own tongue, presiding over an economy slipping into recession, and a nation more obsessed with reality television than with the reality of international terrorism. He was considered by many opinion-leaders a dupe, an illiterate, a cowboy, a preppie, a child of privilege. Now, it is clear to John Podhoretz that Bush has become, and will be remembered, as one of this nation's strongest leaders.

    Danioton says: "Well written, excellent"
    "Right wing reporter likes Bush, shocking!"
    Overall

    Not a bad book really, but it has its facts abit mixed up. For example, the recession happened after Bush came into office, though the White House has been steadily back-dating it as the elections draw near. It should also be noted that the military that has done so well (whether the wars were justified or not, they did well) was the army put together by Bill Clinton (bush didn't have time to make any big changes before the wars). There's also the fact that Bush has been doing everything in his power to hinder the investigation into 9/11, hardly the actions of a good leader who cares about his people. Then there's the lying about the economy, the fact that he turned Clinto's budget surplus into the largest deficit this country has ever seen, and did it in only three years.
    Again, this isn't a terrible book, and Bush has done some good. He isn't evil or stupid like many claim, but he is greedy and arrogant. I suppose it helps that the author is a reporter for the New York Post, which is barely a step adove a supermarket tabloit, and totally in the pocket of republican interests.
