I'm now back from Georgia, where I went for a great Thanksgiving trip to visit my grandparents and Aunt Becca. I will be doing a new photoblog a bit later today (just need to re-size some pictures), and will be working on some new pieces. I managed to get quite a bit of reading done while I was there. I finished Norman Cantor's In the Wake of the Plague, read Bernard Lewis's Assassins, and got about 150 pages into Peter Balakian's The Burning Tigris before I decided that I'd (temporarily, I guess) had enough of death and destruction, so I started reading David Brooks's Bobos in Paradise, which is just a bit lighter!
