A provocative look inside the most dangerous job in America by a powerful new literary voiceWhat is the price of staying connected, of that phone in your hand or that watch on your wrist? Recent TV shows would have you believe that the most dangerous job in America is a crab fisherman, or maybe even an ice road trucker. But what U.S. Department of Labor unequivocally recognizes as truly the most dangerous job in America is a tower dog, the men who work on cell towers all across the country building the networks that keep us all connected. In Tower Dog: Life Inside the Deadliest Job in America, Doug Delaney, a tower dog for over fifteen years, draws readers into this dark and high stakes world that most don't even know exists, yet rely on every minute of every day. This risk-laden profession has been recently covered by NBC Dateline, Frontline, The Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post, but none of these reports have provided an in-depth look at the rough and tumble sub-culture of workers throughout America who are risking their lives—and dying at such a high rate. These men have always been living on the edge of polite society; a fascinating mix of construction crews and thrill-seekers. Delaney is a brash and illuminating guide, and Tower Dog gives us the real experience of what its like for the workers balanced precariously above the clouds.

Todays unions are going the same direction as the dinosaur. Through the federal governments intervention creating laws against the working man, as well as the corrupt business managers stealing the memberships hard-earned money, a hardworking man doesnt stand a chance. My suggestions: first, eliminate the teachers union. Recognize talented, truly intelligent minds and guide them to competent colleges that are not sports enthusiasts. Get this nation energy self-sufficient by completing the numerous nuclear projects that are abandoned and partially completed. There is no reason to have the US military in other parts of the world. Today, there are 510,000 troops abroad at an enormous cost. Stop this insanity. Democracy doesnt work in other nations. Realize this and accept it. End the self-righteous condemnation of other peoples lives. If someone uses dope other than yours, dont let it bother you. Tobacco and booze is fine for you. Heroine, reefer, and cocaine are fine for others. - Xlibris Podcast Part 1: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/boomer-1/ - Xlibris Podcast Part 2: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/boomer-2/ - Xlibris Podcast Part 3: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/boomer-3/ - Xlibris Podcast Part 4: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/boomer-4/ - Xlibris Podcast Part 5: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/boomer-5/

The True Story of How Two Quirky Stray Cats Changed Their Adopted Human Forever After years of loving the vibrant city life in San Francisco, Lonnie Hull DuPont reluctantly trades her three-room apartment on foggy, lively Telegraph Hill for a farmhouse on a quiet plain in Michigan. She immediately misses the rhythm and the pace of the city, and the isolation country living brings has her longing for something more. Enter Kit Kat and Lucy--stray cats who arrive at the farmhouse a year apart and each ask to move in. The antics and oddities of these two strong personalities wrapped in fur bring a new light to the farmhouse and DuPont's life. Kit Kat, an obsessive-compulsive tortoiseshell, can purr her new human into a happier state of mind. Lucy, the playful, leaping Russian Blue who can nail a bat right out of the air, makes her laugh. From the hysterical process of getting two strange cats to like each other, to the exciting years of watching those cats thrive--and inspire DuPont in the process--this book is an energetic tale of cat and human foibles. Animals enrich our lives, and the heartwarming story of how Kit Kat and Lucy changed one woman's world will leave readers enchanted.
