Those have to be the best Weekend Survey answers ever.
I completely approve.
I love The Nightmare Years, too. What an amazing book.
No heroes? Not even me?
Oh, wait -- guess I shoulda readthe answer to # 7 first. Never mind.
And you're shying away from political content? Good Lord -- did you hit your head or something?
And "Oh Christ, I'm Thirty" is quickly approaching for me, too. I feel your pain.
Thanks for your comments! Responses follow--
RTG: Thanks! And thanks very much for posting these weekend surveys each week -- they make for excellent posts and they're great fun to complete.
Sheila: Agreed! Shirer just rules. I love the stories -- they're almost an aside in the book -- about his Year Off in Spain.
Geoff: Yes, turning thirty will be no fun for either of us! Well, I take that back. Turning thirty WILL be fun. It'll just be the hangover afterwards that'll hurt. Besides, they say 30 is the new 20, and clearly they -- whomever they are -- are right.
