Lists
"Lists have always implied social order." ~ David Viscott

In conversations that I have had, many people, especially soldiers and cadets, ask about my favorite books, movies, and other things. You have probably had this happen to you. I think the worth of a person lies in their tastes, interests, passions, and endeavors.

When I answer, I always try do so with a lot of thought and as seriously as I can.  This is serious stuff!

These are in no particular order.
