Just finished the book “The Kissing Sailor.” Seems the who-are-they mystery has been solved by this interesting book. I recommend it to everyone.

The sailor is George Mendonsa and the nurse is Greta Friedman but knowing that doesn’t make the book less fun.

Read "Contagious: Why Things Catch On” by Jomah Berger. Pretty interesting look at how anything becomes popular and why. he used Youtube and advertisements as examples.

Hope to finish "American Passage" by Vincent J. Cannato sometimes today.

It's about the history of Ellis Island and immigration to America. The first immigration center was opened in 1855 and run by the state of NY, it was named Castle Garden.

FYI: Castle Clinton, also referred to as Castle Garden, is a fort and national monument located in Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan in New York City. The structure has served as a fort, theater, opera house, national immigrant receiving station, and aquarium throughout its long history. Today, Castle Garden is called Castle Clinton National Monument and serves as the ticket center for ferries to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.

Should finish “The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America” by Packer, George sometime today.

A MUST read for anyone the wants to know about the banking corruption and scandals. If nothing else read the chapters titled "Tampa." When a banker and a mortgage broker go to jail then we'll know that the justice system is honest and fair. Until then...
