I have also read a few other books lately. All three were by the same author, Loren Spivack (The Free Market Warrior), who came to speak at one of our Cooke County Republican Women's meetings a few months ago. Those books are "The New Democrat" (2010), "The Gorax" (2014), and "The Wizard of Iz" (2016). They are all short books, and all are political parodies in the style of Dr. Suess. Theodor Seuss Geisel, best known as Dr. Seuss, was actually a fairly liberal/socialist kind of guy, apparently. Mr. Spivack was a great speaker, and the idea of the parody books seemed really clever, but I wasn't as wowed as I expected with the actual writing. It's almost too in-your-face political, and there were some obvious typing errors in the first book.
So those are my less-than-glowing reviews for today. As far as women's prisons go, I still have two friends in two different ones. And as far as political things go, I'm all registered for the GOP Convention in San Antonio in June. It's sort of silly, it's sort of a waste of time and money, but it's the place to be if you care about... Well, politics, maybe. The country, maybe. My favorite part of these conventions is talking to strangers and hearing what they're really there for - why they think it's so important to make the effort to be involved. Some are there for School Choice, and some are totally pro-life, and some are just climbing up the ladder of power. Me? Boy, I really don't know what I'm REALLY there for. I guess maybe because I just think it's the right thing to do - to get involved and stay involved and keep learning and keep speaking out for what's right.
