Anyone Who Is Reading The Gulag Deserves A Link

i need to give a shout out to Sarah, who just transferred her excellent blog from Glogger to Munuviana. i love her writing. Her husband just deployed to Iraq and she's done some wonderful posts on that in her old blog. She's also ambitious enough to be reading Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago, a huge tome which is on my "to be read if i'm ever laid up in the hospital for a few months" list, right below Proust's Remembrance of Things Past. Wow.

Also, the elder statesman of Munuviana, Ted of Rocket Jones, posted the latest installment in his series of Air Force memoirs, "Air Force Blue."

Thanks. Actually Gulag isn't really a hard read, though I will say chapter one and the first half of two were a little dry. But then it gets quite interesting...in a depressing why-didn't-I-learn-any-of-this-in-school sort of way.

LOL I've never been called a statesman before. And my eyes aren't sharp enough to make out that prior word... Probably a good thing.

I've read The Gulag in the past. I have to with you the reader does deserve a link. I also recommend that if you do read it, just scan the fisrt chapter. The interesting reading does pick up later in the second.
