I don't know what happen, but my draft blog is not working and I'm not able to post it. That's OK, I will just give you a few books to buy on Kindle or even better, support your local bookstore on Small Business Day.
On another note, the loss of the Mayor of DC - Marion Barry. I will always thank him for giving me my first paying job when I was in high school. Many people may still rehash about some of the crazy things he has done, but I knew the man from my grandmother, great-aunt and my mother, who grew up with him. He was one of the BEST.
