re: Charlie Wilson’s War - MISSOURI WALTZ
I'll have to read the book. I try to first watch the movie because the book is better 99% of the time. I have long maintained that there are no good guys in the Middle East - none. I think that you and I are probably on the same page....

re: Chicago, things to do? - MISSOURI WALTZ
All restaurants are good in Chicago. The bad ones go broke. Be sure to try an Italian beef sandwich. It will be like the very best French dip you ever ate. Two restaurants argue over which one of them has the best. I cannot remember their names so just ask someone once you get there....

Wicked River: The Mississippi When it Last Ran Wild by Lee Sandlin - MISSOURI WALTZ
This is a very good book. It covers the history of the Mississippi River from the early nineteenth century through the Siege of Vicksburg.

re: Fireworks should be available to shoot year round - MISSOURI WALTZ
They are legal year-round in Missouri. In Illinois they used to be illegal year-round and for all I know still are. I know a man who got filthy rich by setting up the first fireworks stand by the Missouri-Illinois bridge over the Mississippi River. [img]https://irs2.4sqi.net/img/general/240x...

re: Midnight Mass - MISSOURI WALTZ
I went at 9:00 o'clock tonight. It was the only mass my small parish had this year. We have a great priest and he did it up right. He smoked it up with incense, chanted the short version of the gospel reading, and incorporated a lot of Latin. Best priest I have had in years. Merry Christm...
