A ceux qui m'interrogent à propos de mon poids je dis que pour ce qui est des régimes, j'ai jeté l'éponge et repris la serviette. Dans ma petite ville de Floride j'ai tout de même mon lot de propositions mais je garde mes distances avec les hommes qui fréquentent le relais routier ou je travaille. Je sais c'est dangereux de donner son coeur à un routier qui ne fait que traverser ma ville tous les 36 du mois. Mais personne ne m'avait prévenu que c'était encore plus dangereux de s'intéresser aux membres du club de motards qui viennent de prendre possession de ma ville.

Il a suffit que je regarde Belle pour être conquis. Mais elle m’a planté là et personne ne fait cela à Piston. Je ne suis pas devenu le second de la nouvelle section du Club des Category 5 Knights en me laissant marcher dessus. Surtout pas par des nanas.

One True Thing
Dustin Davis spent years wishing for a prince but kissing frog after slimy frog. When he sees Archer Kyriakides for the first time, Dusty thinks his luck has finally changed. Archer could be it. The One. But their hot and cold romance leaves Dusty confused: why does it feel right one moment and wrong the next? It doesn't make sense-until the day Dusty meets Archer's identical twin, Asher, and realizes he's been seeing them both. Asher Kyriakides dreams of being a fashion photographer, but he's stuck with a job he hates and an irresponsible playboy brother whose habits drive him absolutely insane, especially when he finds out Archer is dating the cute little blond Asher can't seem to forget. Torn between loyalty and desire, Asher does nothing but try to warn Dusty away. But when Archer finally goes too far, Dusty turns to Asher for comfort, and Asher knows he can't refuse. It isn't long before they realize they're falling fast, but more than one thing stands in their way, not the least of which is Archer, who isn't quite ready to stop being a thorn in his brother's side.
There's little doubt that most humans today are better off than their forebears. Stunningly so, the economist and historian Deirdre McCloskey argues in the concluding volume of her trilogy celebrating the oft-derided virtues of the bourgeoisie. The poorest of humanity, McCloskey shows, will soon be joining the comparative riches of Japan and Sweden and Botswana. Why? Most economists--from Adam Smith and Karl Marx to Thomas Piketty--say the Great Enrichment since 1800 came from accumulated capital. McCloskey disagrees, fiercely. "Our riches," she argues, "were made not by piling brick on brick, bank balance on bank balance, but by piling idea on idea." Capital was necessary, but so was the presence of oxygen. It was ideas, not matter, that drove "trade-tested betterment." Nor were institutions the drivers. The World Bank orthodoxy of "add institutions and stir" doesn't work, and didn't. McCloskey builds a powerful case for the initiating role of ideas--ideas for electric motors and free elections, of course, but more deeply the bizarre and liberal ideas of equal liberty and dignity for ordinary folk. Liberalism arose from theological and political revolutions in northwest Europe, yielding a unique respect for betterment and its practitioners, and upending ancient hierarchies. Commoners were encouraged to have a go, and the bourgeoisie took up the Bourgeois Deal, and we were all enriched. Few economists or historians write like McCloskey--her ability to invest the facts of economic history with the urgency of a novel, or of a leading case at law, is unmatched. She summarizes modern economics and modern economic history with verve and lucidity, yet sees through to the really big scientific conclusion. Not matter, but ideas. Big books don't come any more ambitious, or captivating, than Bourgeois Equality.
