    What books are you reading?

    I went on a bit of an Everest kick a few years ago and read several books about the mountain, including Into Thin Air. Touching My Father’s Soul by Jamling Tenzing Norgay, who was the climbing leader of the IMAX expedition during that 96 disaster, is a great read. He mixes in stories from his father’s journey up Everest as Sir Edmund Hillary’s Sherpa. Also talks about the spiritual life of the sherpas. Also really enjoyed Bear Grylls’ book The Kid Who Climded Everest. I also recommend Into The Wild, also by Krakauer.

    It does. I doubt it’ll win any awards, but if you liked The Karate Kid you’ll enjoy it.

    I'm not sure if anyone else is watching Cobra Kai on YouTube Red, but I highly recommend it. It's good fun. The first two episodes are available for free.

    The Sports Dump

    https://www.vox.com/first-person/2018/5/4/17318324/kanye-wests-slavery-choice-harriet-tubman-tweets “When you hear about slavery for 400 years ... for 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” said West in an interview with TMZ this Tuesday. The backlash was swift and merciless. Rather than backtrack — acknowledging that the idea that slavery was a choice is preposterous — he became even more strident in defending the indefensible. Portraying himself as a modern-day warrior fighting Twitter trolls and assorted media, West went on to argue that if he had lived “148 years ago,” he would have been “more like Harriet [Tubman] or Nat [Turner].” African Americans are “mentally enslaved,” he charged, and he is the hero, like Tubman, who will lead them to freedom. Using a discredited, likely fake quote attributed to Harriet Tubman, West tweeted, “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves,” implying that Tubman too believed many slaves were simply making the decision to stay in bondage.
