    I did it backwards, just finished his first book, Rules of Civility. I enjoyed it, but still like A Gentleman in Moscow better. Agree that as long as Towles keeps writing, I'll keep reading.

    I like the safety and optimism from living in a basically non-corrupt society. That you don't have to bribe judges, or pay cash to medical staff, or slip the zoning guy some money to get your plan...

    Expected high of 103 degrees today in Phoenix; will be 107 degrees on Wednesday 4th. That's why there's little/no outdoor picnics/bbqs here which are always depicted in ads - we do that in winter!

    I think we're seeing the other half of what Trade "war" actually means. I'm just sad for those U.S. workers caught in the whiplash.
