what i'm reading now

This book by progressive web columnist Joe Bageant is a description of how the American working class votes to keep in power the people who are undermining their interests. It's interesting and provocative, and although the language is sometimes crude, it describes the historical and cultural forces that have worked to create red neck America.

A very good book...but also one that I'm sure would make the list of banned books in small towns in Alaska. Could be at the top of the list!

Luckily for me, we have a copy in our local library.

I'm going to have to put this on my reading list.
