Hunger Games, Oscar SchererNews ·Sunday March 25, 2012 @ 21:46 EDT (link)
Finished Hunger Games (book one) Saturday. Interesting. Maybe I'm reading too much anti-statism into it, though. Having their children sent to die in the middle east doesn't seem to rouse people much here and now, but then "our" state has a better propaganda arm.
On Sunday after church we went to Oscar Scherer State Park, a nice park with a lake (Osprey) and some trails. We walked the Green trail, two miles (the third mile was closed as a buffer for eagle habitats), and then I swam in the lake, and didn't get attacked by alligators, which is always refreshing. We happened to be at the park just as the Sarasota Folk and Accoustic Music Festival was finishing up, so got to hear a pretty good Simon and Garfunkel cover before we went walking. On the way home we drove out a little on FL-64 just to see what was there—came across the DeSoto speedway (which is for sale); looks like a nice area, even a few properties for sale along the road.
Books finished: Hatrack River, The Hunger Games.
