Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
""Dracula" always pleases anew, as does "Frankenstein." Both dense, compelling horror reads. "Frankenstein" is the more literary tale, while "Dracula" is just a pleasure."

"It's worth revisiting. Just to ask, "Have I become so callow that I ignore what this book said?" "

"Interestingly, the movie "Cannery Row" was mostly vignettes from "Sweet Thursday." It was a great treatment of Steinbeck. "

Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"Hear, Hear. Loved "Cannery Row," loved "Sweet Thursday" which I took as a sequel. Steinbeck's love for his friend Ed Ricketts (who became "Doc") is really touching. Steinbeck's writing is so rich it's…"

"Was stunned by East of Eden when I read it; but that was just two years ago. Want to wait a few years and read it again to see what it says to me anew. "

"Kipling's always worth a reread. I should have remembered it earlier - "Man who Would Be King" is one I pick up every five years and appreciate anew."

"I got out of the habit of studying lines, actively. Now I record the read-through and then listen to it while walking the dog, working out, in the car, etc. Sitting down to memorize is just agony. Try it! After all - you can probably recite your…"

Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"I read this in high school and thought it was lousy. Re-read it as a man and thought it was magnificent, and read the rest of Hemingway. Some stuff is just better reading for a mature man than a young one."

Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"I reread a lot of the classics from high school English class - Moby Dick and Grapes of Wrath in particular - what struck me was how much I missed the first time, how different the story appeared through an older lens. Those are my motivations for…"

"No indeed - great summato (stop you from being you). And Nixon didn't attempt to kill the enemies on his famous Enemies List, Paul Newman included. Am truly delighted with the intelligent responses to this question - thanks, Devin!"

Devin Foil replied to Dann Anthony's discussion Having enemies a sign of character?
"I don't have a nemesis. I don't have any enemies in sense of having enemies in war.  But I do think that people who want to stop "you" from being "you" is an enemy, and that can apply to a very strange person who…"

David Silva replied to Dann Anthony's discussion Having enemies a sign of character?
"I believe so. Beeing a man includes standing up for what you believe. And that means that someone is on the other side. Character means you are man enough to face them."

"Thank you :) I didn't know that about Paul Newman, either.  I knew vaguely that he was an actor, but I don't know whether I've ever even seen any of his films.  I had to wonder, "why would Paul Newman have any enemies…"

"I think shutting down some of the social programs that enable the culture would be the best way to accomplish that goal.  I don't think it will be easy, as a matter of fact it may cause some serious repercussions socially and politically."

"Not really. CA is the #1 economy and Arkansas is #35, but it's nowhere near as small an economy as Sarah Palin's Alaska. Plus, Clinton before being governor was a Rhodes Scholar and a Lawyer.... What was Reagan?"
