2. Also tomorrow, Jason Fry and Ryder Wyndham, who create Star Wars-themed reference and childrens' books, will discuss all things Star Wars at Third Place Books. There will also be a regiment of Storm Troopers, and a prize for the best Star Wars-themed costume.

Her new book, Drift, isn’t some huge-font reprinting of Rachel Maddow Show content, like we get from the Fox News crew. It’s an examination of how the American military has basically detached itself from the government, making it too easy for the United States to declare perpetual war. It’s refreshing to see someone making a case against the military-industrial complex (known in polite company as “Halliburton”) in such clear, concise prose.
