Celebrate Kansas City Toilet Reading

A tome that's certainly worthwhile but probably won't generate much excitement from many people in the era of quick hit social media news tidbits. Still a good gift idea and inspiration for a good night's sleep: Kansas City Writer Candice Millard's Latest Explores Young Winston Churchill At War

The only thing to read while on the crapper is Craig Glazer. If he can't get your shit flowing nothing will.

Millard used to work for National Geographic, and is the rare combination of high intelligence, grace, wit and beauty.

Starting in 1911, when Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty (Sec. of the Navy) he pushed for Britain's naval transformation from coal power to oil power. At the same time, Britain established a presence in the Persian Gulf to secure oil reserves, in what would become known as the British Petroleum corporation. As petroleum's importance quickly grew, the West has been embroiled in the region ever since. U.S. foreign policy has largely been driven by Big Oil concerns for decades now.
