Default A good read

Theodore and Woodrow.

A book detailing the founding of the American progressive movement.

This book will open your eyes about the origins of the mess we're in today.

That book really opened my eyes and gave me a completely new insight to one of my childhood heroes; Theodore Roosevelt.

I grew up reading his hunting exploits and still appreciate them, but.... I no longer hold him in the same esteem I did as a youth.

Currently reading "A Patriot's History of the United States."

Sometimes reality is a bit of hell....

Yeah, he was my child hood hero as well. Must have been a 19th century version of
John McCain.
