TV Award Shows. No – Liberal Hollywood against Trump and all things Right. Disgusting.

Anyone read any good books lately? I am looking for something that can be listened to on Audible.

One of my favorite Apocalyptic movies is Maximum Overdrive. If not familiar it is about a passing comet has an effect on all mechanical entities in that they come alive. Of course, they go after all humans. While there are some serious problems with the science behind the story it is for entertainment. Ignore the plausibility and just enjoy it.

We now have Hurricane Maria heading in a direction which could impact the eastern United States. Hopefully, it will end up out to sea.
