    Been working on 'The Big Burn' the last few days. I picked it up after I watched the American Experience show about it on PBS. A lot about the actual fire, of course, but also a lot about the early days of the Forest Service, the national forests, and all the politics around them...the more things change, the more the remain the same. I had just finished 'The Bully Pulpit' about Teddy Roosevelt & W.H. Taft under whose administration it all happened and it actually had quite an effect on Taft's credibility. Both interesting books altho Bully Pulpit is a pretty long read.

    The "Assassination Option" by W.E.B. Griffin. Always enjoy his writing about the Army, Marines, OSS/CIA, and Philly police department. Just before that, "The Burning Room" by Michael Connelly.

    Waiting for the next Lee Child and/or Robert Crais novels...
