Russia accuses Poland of starting Second World WarRussia has accused Poland of provoking the outbreak of the Second World War by refusing to accede to the “very modest” demands of Nazi Germany. Apparently Putin has Karl Rove and the rest of the GOP team advising him now. This is rank revisionism worthy of any neocon nutter. (Thanks to .)

    Can you tell me why the Multnomah County Library doesn’t have any copies of “Green” available for holds?

    I love the library (son and brother of librarians) and could not afford to support my reading jones without it. Sorry, I wish I could buy it, but I am on a limited retirement income. I loved “Mainspring” and “Escapement”.

    While it is one of the great public libraries in the country, it still needs a little pushing. Please harass the library.

    Good Luck with “Green”. One way or another, I will read it.

      Thanks, Rick. Green should be in soon, it’s only been released this month!
