06/21/2017

It’s been a long time since I’ve read 1984. well over a decade ago.  But I did read 1984 and Brave New World at relatively the same time.  and I remember, then, that I liked Brave New World a lot better.  Nothing against 1984, which is still a great novel.  I think I had liked […]

  I like the concept of this bit, speaks to me and my – I feel older while realizing I’m not that much older – sense.  I’ve been known to get on a couple “kids these days” soapboxes, and perhaps reminisce about a prior time – that was not that long ago.  Maybe things change […]
