Will I do every chapter, probably not, I lose interest quickly if the book drones on, so initial chapters will have better reviews. If you've read the book, or want to read it, follow and comment or even disagree with me.
The Black Swan, The Impact of the Highly Improbable.

No, they just want the troops home from Iraq because we were having a hard time beating the little militias over there and we were seeing our troops give up their lives, the biggest sacrifice.
Well, why is it then that when good news about success in Iraq begins slowly leaking out, the press nor the pundits have the time to say anything? The British are turning over control of an entire province to the Iraqi's. That's a success right?

"It is surprising that intellectuals oppose capitalism so. Other groups of comparable socio-economic status do not show the same degree of opposition in the same proportions. Statistically, then, intellectuals are an anomaly."
Homeownership a Problem? What a liberal says.
