What I Read in April: Part 1

Time for another quick round-up of the books I've read and listened to lately. I finished 16 books in April, most of them audiobooks. Why so many books? I spent the month doing some major paper shredding and cleaning out a storage room. All that gave me hours of good listening time! Here is part 1 of what I read last month, in the order I finished each book (part 2 will go live on Thursday). Note that the following thoughts are also available on Goodreads. Thanks to the publishers and to Libro....

I had actually never read anything by Lee before. I’ve only read 50 or 60 pages, but her style is immensely appealing.

Book Review: Ron Chernow’s Biography of Ulysses S. Grant

I read 900 pages about Ulysses S. Grant in Ron Chernow’s authoritative biography. It was extraordinary. It’s hard not to agree with Chernow claims that Grant is the most underrated president in U.S. history. I knew little to nothing about Grant going in, and hadn’t read a full length book about the Civil War before. So I got a superb education in the three areas I look for when reading a biography: A person of consequence The time period in which the person lived, in this case, Civil War-...

‘True Believer’ Author Abraham Riesman Dissects the Complicated Legacy of Stan Lee [Interview]

The legacy of Marvel Comics maestro Stan Lee has been muddy for decades. Even as the supposed mastermind behind the early days of Spider-Man, Thor, and the Fantastic Four evolved into a beloved international icon with cameos in every Marvel film, controversy nipped at his heels. At the heart of it all: the constant rumblings that he didn’t actually co-create his most famous characters, and that he went out of his way to bury the talented artists who worked alongside him. The new biography True ...

Lee Press On Ammo

I must be getting bored, because this is starting to look like an enjoyable project: A Lee Hand Press and a set of 9mm dies. I've got thousands of small pistol primers, freezer bags full of once-fired brass, and I have no idea how many projectiles of various types. Powder's probably my weak link, but I'm pretty sure I've got a few pounds that'll work with nine loads. I can't really use homemade 9mm stuff for work, and really wouldn't want to load in those kind of volumes anyway. For that I'd...

Graphic memoirs draw on life experience to both show and tell their story

“They say,” Merrill Markoe observes in “We Saw Scenery: The Early Diaries of Merrill Markoe,” “the opening line of a book is a good indication of what is to come.” (p. 31) In this case, that means the following sentence, rendered as an image of her childhood handwriting: “I forgot what happened today.” It’s a vivid way to begin a narrative that not only, like all memoirs, explore memory, but also visually recreates Markoe’s early life. “We Saw Scenery” is a graphic memoir that blends the revelat...

Jelly Bean Splash: Dyeing Wool With Easter Egg Dye

After dyeing our Easter eggs, I hesitated to pour out the remaining dye. Since vinegar has been difficult to find during the 2020 Corona virus outbreak, I felt guilty wasting what vinegar was used in the dye. I knew I could use it on my yarn, but it was such a little amount of liquid color. There was no way I could fully soak the yarn in a pan/pot. However, I recently worked with a hand-painted yarn that resembled color splashed onto the yarn. So I thought I would mimic the effect on some ba...

Sometimes we find yarn in our stash that we just feel so-so about. It isn't terrible, but we wish it had more pizzaz.

How Many Prosecutions For Illegally Owned Suppressors Happen in the USA?

How Many Prosecutions For Illegally Owned Suppressors Happen in the USA? U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Very few people are prosecuted for the illegal possession of silencers/suppressors in the United States. One of the problems in understanding the U.S. criminal justice system is records are dispersed. Records are kept in many different formats, and not easily searchable or sortable by offense. There are both federal and state crimes. The data is not all digitized. When it is, it is not all in sea...
