    I have been reading this book on the Attica prison riot from 1971. The first half is great. The last part gets bogged down in the various lawsuits. But overall an excellent read.

    Reading Chase The Darkness With Me, by Billy Jensen, he was a reporter who turned detective consultant and helped finish the book I'll Be Gone In The Dark and has a podcast with Paul Holes, who worked the Golden State Killer Case. Just finished Stay Sexy and Don't Get Murdered By Georgia Hardstark and Karen Kilgareth, of the Podcast My Favorite Murder.

    I just finished the Victorian book of the dead. Some of their customs were absolutely hilarious! The lengths that women went to trying to “outmourn” each other were astonishing!

    That sounds like something I'd love to read.

    Just finished reading Poisoner In Chief:Sidney Gottlieb And The CIA Search For Mind Control. Fascinating, disturbing and as scary as any crime book I've read. https://www.politico.com/magazine/st...=pocket-newtab
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    Smoke Gets In Your Eyes. Caitlin Doughty. A girl who’s only dream was to work in a crematorium. A true autobiography, Please somebody pick this up and read it I have to talk about it with someone! Nobody that I know personally would appreciate it! Fun fact! You start your day with skinny people to cremate. They don’t take long. And you finish your day with the fat people they take forever and you need the heat buildup in the crematorium. Skinny people smell like fireworks. The enormous people smell like bacon. Oh yeah… After cremation your bones are put in a blender, however babies bones are so small they don’t grind. Those have to be pulverized by and mortar and pedestal

    Lulu, did you know she has a youtube channel? I watch and remember her talking about what time of day they cremate larger people.
