Henry -- I read one book: "Madam Secretary," by Madeleine Albright. I highly recommend it to people with interest in modern Central European history, as well as those who can't get enough of international policies of the 1990s. Will hopefully be writing a joint review of that, and the latest by Wes Clark & Gyorgy Soros....

Madeleine Albright? On the beach? Next time take "Fingersmith."

I am furious that you two totally missed my black eyes! I could have pretended I had a run-in with street toughs.

Ohhhh, no. Madeleine? I was hoping for baseball or science fiction or a musician bio. OK, I asked, so I'll peek at the library.

Don't you people care about the current events? This damned Internet prevents me from reading my share of chunky Policy books, so I found Madlenka's tome very relaxing....

Your point 7 brings back vivid memories of my arrival at Greyhound downtown LA terminal 15 years ago... followed by a long walk trough the neighborhood in search of an ugly duckling rental agency which address happened to be in Santa Monica, not LA... by the find of another agency, fortified like the Alamo, which rented a car that died as soon as I reached sunset boulevard... which didn't look as glamourous as I expected.
Let me tell you : there is worst than loking like a luggage-toting, hopelessly lost tourist. It's being one.
