Cinder by Marissa Meyer is a young adult novel that was recommended by my daughter. So I read it. Some YA novels have attraction to all ages. I understand why my daughter liked it. Nice twist on the fairy tale. Not sure I'll follow up, but your pre-teen and teenage girls will love it.

Just because...

President Obama decided to visit Hiroshima, I decided to post this again. Even if he doesn't turn it into another apology tour the fact is that the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved American AND Japanese lives. Apologize for that.

Another reason not to shop at Target

Target Suing Man Who Saved Teen Girl from Stabbing in Its Store
He helped save a customer and probably prevented injuries to others, and they sue him. This makes sense how? Oh well, they have nothing I can't get elsewhere.

Unforgettable by James Eric Stone.

That was enjoyable, but...yeah I know, but. May be th eleads need to explain his peculiar talent to every character he meets starts to wears a bit. So let's just say four out of five and look forward to Stone's next novel.

Another win...

U.S. judge strikes down D.C. concealed-carry gun law as probably unconstitutional
The DC bureaucrats keep trying, and they keep losing. May the trend continue on.

Zero Tolerance in Action

In Colorado a kindergartener was suspended for bring a bubble gun to school. Suspended. No call to the parents with a warning. Suspension.

This what bureaucrats do rather than think, or better yet their jobs. The only lesson learned here is that the principal is a dick.

My Brother's Keeper by Mike Kupari

I'd read Kupari's two collaborations with Larry Correia and enjoyed them immensely. I enjoyed this book as well, and look forward to more. The general plot is privateer is sent by dad to rescue her kidnapped brother. Adventure and mayhem ensues. Good characters, good action, good story, good book. Recommended.

A Win for the Good Guys

Court Rules That Right To Buy, Sell Guns Protected By 2A In SAF Case
Yeah, it's a win, but will the bad guys appeal and ask for an en blanc hearing at which point we get hosed by the anti-gun judges? Just saying...

The thing about silent majorities.. they are silent and out of the fight. If the majority of gun owners wanted your flavor of gun control Katie, they'd have it with a simple vote. Politicians support those who keep them in office. If the majority is silent it is because they don't care.

Honor at Stake by Declan Finn
Dark Victory by Bredan DuBois

Honor at Stake is essentially good vamp versus bad vamp with a different take on how the good v. evil thing works for them. I'm not sure where this novel falls in Finn's bibliography but it reads well and works for the most part. I'd definitely like to read a sequel and will probably take a hard look at any of his non Pope books.

DeBois is apparently a long time novelist that has totally slipped by me. I got this alien invasion novel with one of Baen's bundles and it sat in the queue a bit. Wish I gotten into it quicker now. Well written, well thought out, and moves quickly. I'll definitely be looking into more by this guy.

Both books are recommended.

Study: Acetaminophen dulls your pain -- but also your empathy

Really, it kinda speaks for itself...

Paper Gun Leads to School Lockdown in Hartford
...except the stupid these people live in needs to be shown to all. It's paper you dolts! Paper. Something that the staff should have been able to determine and address without a lock down and notification of the police.

I expect a lot of this over the next few weeks.

Captain America: Civil War

It is a fun entertaining flick. I've only got two complaints. Shaky cam sucks, and they use way too much. When the bad guys disembark in Lagos, Cap identifies their weapons as AR-15s and they open up with full auto. It's Hollywood and Disney. I should expect the assault weapons bullshit. Still, go see it. These are extremely minor things.

Changling's Island by Dave Freer

A troubled young man is sent to live with his grandmother on a remote Australian island, and he comes of age and finds his place in the world. There are fantasy elements as he has a connection to Faery, but I think the story might have worked as well without it. Freer is in his element here. This is an enjoyable book. Read it. I liked this and recommend it highly.
