Book Discussion: "One Summer: America, 1927" by Bill Bryson
The summer of 1927 began with Charles Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic. Meanwhile, Babe Ruth was closing in on the home run record. In Newark, New Jersey, Alvin “Shipwreck” Kelly sat atop a flagpole for twelve days, and in Chicago, the gangster Al Capone was tightening his grip on bootlegging.

Inspired by the aphorisms of Nietzsche, Karl Kraus,…

Book Discussion: "The Monuments Men" by Robert M. Edsel
Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History At the same time Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe. The Fuehrer had begun cataloguing the art he planned to collect as well as the art he would destroy: "degenerate" works he despised. In a race against time, behind enemy lines, often unarmed, a special force of American and British museum directors, curators, ar…
