JHK was on BBC Newsnight in January '06 talking sense while the other morons on the show talked sh1t. That was my introduction to PO, thankyou James for that and all the other stuff you do (just in case you read this).
While reading the book I had to keep telling myself I wasn't reading a western from the 19th century.
I looked up some of the locations in the book on GoogleEarth, sad eh

It's a beautiful area around there. I wouldn't mind being around there post peak.
Here's the area I am talking about. I'll bet it was Cambridge, NY that is Union Grove in the book:

I do recommend reading this book..if you are a male or if you are a hard-hearted woman like myself. For it has one very tragic weakness: it cannot penetrate into the reality and minds of women. And it grossly underestimates the true power of the feminine. As someone who has lived the life he writes about, I know exactly what happens and who gets to do what.

All the women want to do is to go to Wal-Mart and go shopping. they want to go to church on Sunday to show how pious they are, then rip their fellow women to shreds the rest of the week. They never smile, unless they want something from you. They are sniping, dark souled sad people.
I see mean, greedy, broad minded women who spend most of their time at Target and Macy's. Shopping is a religion. Consumption is their goal. Total self-absorption and malignant narcicism are the diseases.
Most of the shopping and consumption is done by women, not men.
