I’m stretched out on the sofa with a pencil and note pad in my hands trying to come up with something new to post. The day’s work is done and Bob FM is on the radio. The “Warrior” by Scandal is playing. Two pillows cradle my weary head and as I turn my gaze to my glass of Iron City Beer sitting within reach on the low-table my eyes catch sight of the little book shelf under the stand that my TV sits on.
The fifth book from the left is Vietnam (A History) by Stanley Karnow (Winner of the Pulitzer Prize.) I’ve read this book of 768 pages three times and plan to read it again. It is simply the best history I’ve read about the Vietnam War. The book was published in 1983. If you’re interested in the Vietnam War it is a fine book to read. If you are a Vietnam War vet it is a fine book to own.
Now the Jefferson Airplane is hammering out “Somebody To Love.”
