I blame my low grade cynical depression on my work as an editorialist that focuses on politics.
Currently I'm reading The German Way of War by Robert Citino (come back to EMU Doc) and I read A Fierce Discontent when I'm waiting for Team Fortress 2 to load. I'm also going to start The War that Came Early: The Big Switch soon. Oh and the Deathstalker series when I'm playing Total War games-in between turns.
I am the very model of a nineteenth centíry historian, I have information Lincoln, Polk, Jacksonian. When it comes to US battles I am very full of trivia, From Montezuma to the shores Algeria. Roosevelt I envy for his awesomeness, Coolidge I disdain for his shamefulness. My forte urban and Michiganian, I am the very model of a nineteenth centíry historian.
