Some books I've read/am reading

Some books that I've been reading lately include:
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
This is a book about an autistic boy in England who discovers
a dead dog and the results of his detective work. (Thanks Ben
W. for suggesting this book)
Courtroom 302 by Steve Bogira
A reporter spends one year in a courtroom in the Chicago
criminal courthouse.
Disclaimer: If you're sick of lawschool and don't want to read
any books that are law-related, this is not a book for you.

The latest news on NPR

Here are some more interesting stories that I heard on NPR the
other day...
In one town, an island town is weighing secession from the
(larger) mainland town because they do not want to lose their
school to the mainland.
In another town, taxes have become so expensive that they are
being forced to deincorporate. It would be interesting to do
some sociological study to see why this is occurring.
