A Hole in Texas

No, not more politics...it's the title of Herman Wouk's latest book, which I just finished and loved. As a soft-money academic, I found it refreshingly realistic...it's basically about getting grants funded, a rather unusual topic for a novel. Except with hearings on TV and beautiful congresswomen and Chinese spies and national honor at stake and stuff like that, to make it more interesting.
