Methland--#73 finished

A very good book about the struggles of dealing with the meth problem in small town America. Living in St Louis, you have to be aware of the meth problem in the nearby counties, some of which are the worst in the nation for mom & pop meth producing. The author follows a smallish town, 6k, in Iowa for a period of 3 to 4 years and brings in info on some nearby towns as well. A very good book and I hope that it has changed the way politicians have been dealing with this issue.

I will be mailing this book off on PBS at some point but will probably wait till after the holidays are over first. There are still something like 50 to 60 WL for it so do not have to be in any hurry. Still reading the John Stossel book, very close to finishing though. Also started Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving and another book Decent into somewhere or something--can't remember the title off hand. Probably won't start another till I finish the Stossel book.
