I ran across a run of Mad Magazine from the late 90s last night and flipped through about 5 or 6 issues.

Just finished reading an anthology of the four main Sherlock Holmes novels that make up the primary canon: "A Study in Scarlet" (1887), "The Sign of the Four" (1890), "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1901), and "The Valley of Fear" (1914).  Excellent reads and so different and more clever than these stupid Robert Downey, Jr. movies. 

Now I'm finally getting around to reading Steven Adler's autobiography. 

Next up will be a biography on Eisenhower.  I'm not sure where I'll go from there but looking for any good fiction or non-fiction suggestions.

Despite not having the publicity of The Hound of the Baskervilles, I enjoyed The Valley of Fear more.

Currently reading To the Lighthouse, by Virginia Woolf.

I bet that's an interesting book.  I don't care for Buchanan's views most of the time and am certainly glad his run for president failed but, I respect the passion.  He was great on the McLoughlin Group that was on PBS.

Buchanan is a great pundit that I will admit, but as a serious Presidential candidate, no way should he ever run

I'd give my right arm to have him president.

I completely agree, the time that he and Nader spent teaming up to give more attention and viability to third party candidates was great and inspirational.  I don't begrudge him running, just thank God no one ever votes for him.

I agree, although Holmes and Watson were barely in Valley of Fear.  The second half of the book was a very lengthy flashback so it didn't feel like a Holmes story, but it was very good nonetheless.

I don't think a one-armed man would fare very well in the race war.

With Buchanan as president, there wouldn't be a need for me to partake.:D

Boy, it would truly suck to see American companies returning back home, an end of the tidal wave of illegals, no more needless wars, massive deportations, and a restoration of the 2nd Amendment.

Well at least a couple of those things would suck.
