    I’d rather hear George talk about Tolstoi than fucking Trump. Enough with it already, Stephen’s primitive, juvenile obsession about the most banal person currently on the face of the earth is unbearable. It ruins any thread of substance from all interactions that happen on this show.

    When I see a story about LINCOLN or some other historical figure a part of me just goes “YUCK! I’ll go see what I can find in the FANTASY section!” *GRIN* But I have been a MYTHOLOGY FREAK since I learned to read… Buddhism and it’s philosophies have become my “GO TO” for trying to explain my feelings lately… this looks like it might actually get me to read a story on an ex-president! (And it might possibly get me to change my mind the next time I’m looking at these books!

    The man speaks as if from my own soul. Definitely have to look into some of his works. What a great interview = )
