What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.

It's said that it is never good to talk politics or religion in mixed company. But those are the most interesting topics, aren't they? And the most important topics, aren't they? Last year's American Presidential election was an emotional one. There are many of my friends and co-workers who are depressed by and disillusioned by the outcome. I myself was very sad and disappointed, but I maintain that since human nature is the same, we are no worse than the worst of times and no better than the best of times. The Worst President: The Story of James Buchanan was interesting to me because I didn't know anything about him at all! And after reading this book, I can see why.
