I'm reading Left for Dead, a book about the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis during World War II, but I'm trying to finish it up tonight. From there I'll probably try to read The Virtue of Selfishness by Ayn Rand and Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk at the same time.

That's actually pretty funny. Well the non-political stuff is (cos I don't pay attention to politics).

I'm getting reaaaaally tired of Socrates. Fortunately, we've temporarily shifted focus to Athenian legal speeches.

Bill Maher is great. I used to listen to the podcast of his HBO show.

I've never had to do anything on Socrates for a class before, so I'm excited for that (I do like him). I just don't want to do this presentation

Athenian legal speeches eh? Who are you reading?


Edit: Wait, that's not true, I had to read Gorgias for an ethics class last semester. Still

It's "Trials From Classical Athens," translated by Christopher Carey. It's a collection of speeches from various legal trials. It's pretty interesting, because some of the cases are pretty juicy stuff (guy kills another man when he catches him sleeping with his wife, etc).

The Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini, which is awesome, and which is available free online if you look for it (via Project Gutenberg).

What is better than reading the rants of a bitter, sarcastic, occasionally murderous genius living and working in Florence 450 years ago?
