I'm finally on the back half of Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes. It's a thick book plus I tend to only get to read on the throne or before bed. Great research.

In the middle of "ghost wars" about the CIA and Afghanistan from the early 70's on. Pretty interesting so far.

Finished "Against Their Will" by Hanablum, Newman and Dober. True store of how during much of the 1900's "feeble minded, handicapped and retarded" mostly children where used as "volunteers" to help promote advances in medicine. The vast majority of volunteers never had their parent approve in their use for studies. I am sure all of us and our loved ones have benefited by this in one way or another. Still, a quite sad way to carry our science. Who knew the easiest and most cost effective way to introduce a disease to an otherwise disease free person was to unknowingly feed them feces from another diseased person.

Just started "Plum Island" by Nelson DeMille. Pretty good so far. Been struggling to find a series to get into going into the summer.

I read "Not Cool, The Hipster Elite and Their War On You" by Greg Gutfeld. If you don't know him he is on "The Five" and "The Red Eye" on Fox. The guy has quite the sense of humor. It was a fun easy read during my vacation. It also made a lot of sense.

About to start "Lone Survivor". I saw the movie in the theater when it came out, but am still really looking forward to the book.

Just watched the movie. Liked the book better. Movie changed a couple if things to make it more "Hollywood." Book is an easy read.

Just finished "The Skeleton Crew" by Deb Halber. A interesting look into the world of Web Sleuths who dedicate themselves to trying to find the identities of long lost forgotten people found dead in public. Many cases are decades old and thanks to the interweb the clues available are becoming more attainable to the average investigator wannabe. Cool stuff. Anyone can do it.
