Triumph of the Will

So long, Adolf!

I did it!  I finished The Rise & Fall of the Third Reich!!  Last week I set myself the goal of finishing it by April 20, Hitler’s birthday.  (Disclaimer:  I’m not a Hitler fan.  I know it’s his birthday because it’s also the date of the Columbine shootings.  Ummm…that doesn’t really make my case for normalcy, does it?)

But at any rate, I’m done!  It will be strange adjusting to life without William L. Shirer at my elbow every day, and I have absolutely no idea what I’ll read next.  Hopefully something easy and cheesy and hopeful.  But since that’s not really my style,  I’ll probably end up with Cormac McCarthy instead.  As long as there’s no Nazis, it’s all good.

Churchill’s gonna see us out.  Do your worst, and we will do our best!
