Follet is a beast. His books are usually pretty long but I've always moved through them quickly. He's an excellent writer and does a very good job of making you feel like you are in the time period the book takes place in....

re: Just picked up "The Second World War" by John Keegan - Loubacca
I've only read "The First World War". If it's anything like that it will be excellent. I read a lot of books in this genre and it takes a good author to be able to hold your attention while plowing through details that can get monotonous at times. I think he does of good job of keeping the narrat...

re: Ms. Lizz's Deli North BR - Loubacca
You obviously need to be aware of where you are, but the the NBR shtick about your a dead man if you cross over FLA Blvd is worn out. There isn't much variety but they do have some good little plate lunch joints around there....

Michael Chabon - Loubacca
Are there any other Michael Chabon fans out there? I really enjoyed the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and The Yiddish Policeman's Union. I'm about to read some of his other books and was wondering if any of the other ones are as good as ones I mentioned. I will say that I have to break ...

re: LEAP results: EBR continues to decline - Loubacca
Seriously though, I would think that there is enough diversity throughout the city to where this would not be a problem (instituting neighborhood schools). Realistically, what are the chances in achieving perfect racial balance at every school? ...

re: LEAP results: EBR continues to decline - Loubacca
[quote]I understand that and more of a reason to have an ISD in south EBR.[/quote] I would venture to say it can be fixed right now by going to neighborhood schools without having to have a separate ISD. You would think they would just say frick it and give it a shot. What do they have to lose?...
