<p>i just picked up today <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0871138883/102-9832324-6863312?v=glance">the long emergency</a> by James Howard Kunstler. i asked about it at the bookstore and they had to go check the back. and apparently, they just received 10 minutes prior. awesome.</p>

<p>it seems like it's similarish to power down, by richard heinberg. these days i can't think about much else besides the impending crash(es).</p>

<p>for a preview of it, <a href="http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/_/id/7203633?rnd=1113695712365&amp;has-player=unknown">see the article he wrote</a> for rolling stone magazine based on the book.</p>
