American Dialogue: The Founders and Us -... American Dialogue: The Founders and Us - Joseph J. Ellis,Arthur Morey

...you have to read this book. Joseph J. Ellis explains it all. In his clear and concise style, he dives deeply into four issues that have plagued our nation since our founding-- racism/slavery, economic inequality, American imperialism and the doctrine of original--explaining why these four issues have brought us to where we are today and how they have shaped our current political quagmire.

Post-Millennium Rhapsody - J. Andrew Schrecker

Opens with a long-ish poem that seems to be in reaction to current events. Followed by a short story that evokes pretty nostalgia and a few dozen shorter poems that were written earlier. A little all over the place as a collection, but plenty of good material. Vivid imagery and some rather surreal tangents.

Insomniacs, We - J. Andrew Schrecker

Lots of rich imagery. Plenty of social commentary too, but the writing is best when focused on more intimate moments.
