Favorite book for 2014! | So We Read On How the Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures by Maureen Corrigan
Corrigan, a book critic for NPR's Fresh Air and a professor of literature at Georgetown, has been teaching F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby for decades and is convinced it is the great American novel. While I don't necessarily agree with her, I did enjoy her insight into the novel. Anyone with an interest in American literature, particularly those who are fans of Fitzgerald, Gatsby, and the "Lost Generation" should enjoy this book.

John Marshall, possibly the most famous Chief Justice of all ... ruled in their favor, and stated in a really astonishing ruling that it was blindingly obvious that the Cherokees had the right to govern themselves on their land, and had had that right since before Colonial times. It's a complicated story, but in the end, nothing happened to enforce that ruling. The Cherokees lost, even when they won.
