    1. This is a series of anecdotes from McCaslin’s career as a journalist, spanning Kalispell, Montana, where he started—he grew up in the DC area, but journalists are forbidden by an unwritten law from starting in DC—through the early 21st century.This means that there is a lot about bears in the beginning, and a lot about September 11 in the end.

    2. This is a pretty fun and entertaining collection of political stories and tidbits from the last 30 years or so of Beltway politics.

Recommended for political junkies.
