Did not completely finish the book. It's a dense 440 pages. Got about three-fourths through. But it gave me some more to learn.

1) The history of conquerors gets pretty ugly at times. 2) Apparently, mobsters were more brutal in real life than in the movies. 3) And it sounds like the 1960's are to cultural revolution as the internet was (and is) to modern media. It was a game changer. If that's the case, was there any other time period in America during the last 20 or 30 years that has had as much cultural significance?

Going to find out about this $10,000 natural gas-powered, privately-owned generator concept. I almost don't believe it. Well, if and when I get to it. Got a handful of other books sitting at home to get through.
