Between Charlotte, SC and Greensboro, NC -- August 20, 2007

Reading Blood Orchid, by Stuart Woods. He goes through books like these in about three hours. Reading, for him, is an escape, something he doesn’t think kids these days take advantage of so much. When he was young he’d read books like the Iliad or the Odyssey or just read Greek mythology.

Does he have a favorite book? Not really. Well, he likes the Dune classics by Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson.

If he were to write his own book, it’d be fiction based on a real event. He’d take a look at something that happened and approach it from a different perspective, similar to how Apocalypse Now was about Vietnam. He might write about world history, including puppet governments put in place by the United States or about the War in Iraq—he wonders what sort of spin will be placed on it in the history books. He doesn’t approve of what’s going on in the Middle East—a lot of young people are getting killed and his great great grand children are going to be paying the bill, too.
