I had difficulty making it through his doorstop books, but family members (male) thought they were super.

Gone too early...RIP.

Mr. Clancy´s books were not my favored genre, but I had an audio book of "Red Storm Rising" for a long car trip to New Mexico. I learned from that experience that a Clancy story requires full concentration or you´ll miss something vital. I did a lot of driving around the block before stopping for gas or food because the tale was so intense. He furnished a lot of reading (and listening) pleasure to many fans.

2013 has been a bad year for some of my favorite entertainment authors--Vince Flynn and Tom Clancy were at the top of my list. I just hope that Stephen Hunter and Frederick Forsyth stay healthy enough to write ten more books, apiece. RIP, Mr. Clancy. Mr. Clark--one of my favorite characters in the thriller genre--is in mourning.

Clancy´s early books were excellent and a real inspiration for aspiring novelists. I recall the buzz when The Hunt for Red October first came out that (before the internet, too!) he had gleaned so much technical information about weapon systems from public documents. I found the book-not the farce of the movie- The Sum of All Fear really frightening. Clancy was prescient about the affinity between radical Islam and the western political left.

His later books got a bit clunky and predictable.

"Red Storm Rising" was probably the first fiction book I ever picked up at a store (as a paperback at Publix, I think!) and decided to buy (well, my grandparents bought it for me - thanks Nan & Pop!)

I must have read it in four days - and at over 650 pages, that was quite the undertaking. But as a teenager interested in military technology and strategy, I couldn´t put it down.

I went on to buy his debut title, "The Hunt for Red October," plus Mr. Clancy´s next six or seven books ("Without Remorse" is one that should definitely be made into a movie), as well as the non-fiction military topic books he co-authored. I enjoyed each one of them immensely and learned a lot along the way.

Though, I have to say I never quite got into the books where his name was on the cover, but were actually authored by others.

Mr. Clancy will definitely be missed.

So sorry to hear he passed away. His books written in the 1980s were great - as were some later ones. I used to make a cheat sheet when reading his books to keep track of all the characters. I pray he is enjoying the company of Pres. Reagan and Lady Thatcher about now.

CNN Apologizes for Briefly Airing
Non-Flight 370 Story
The New Yorker, by Andy Borowitz    Original Article

NEW YORK — CNN apologized to its viewers today for briefly airing a story on Sunday that had nothing to do with the missing Malaysia Airlines flight. The story, which caused thousands of viewers to contact the network in anger, had something to do with Crimea, Ukraine, and Russia. In the official apology, CNN chief Jeff Zucker wrote, “On Sunday, we briefly cut away from our nonstop coverage of Flight 370 to talk about something else. We’re not going to sugarcoat it: we messed up. CNN regrets the error and promises our viewers that it won’t happen again.”

Democrats Lining Up to Oppose Obama´s
Anti-Gun Nominee For Surgeon General

President Obama´s anti-gun nominee for Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Hallegere Murthy, could go down in flames on the Senate floor. Murthy, who has a history of calling guns a "healthcare issue," classifying guns as a "public health threat" and of slamming the National Rifle Association, is being opposed not by just Republicans, but numerous Democrats in an election year. Democratic Senate aides estimated on Monday that from eight to 10 Democrats may oppose Murthy’s nomination if the vote were to be held soon, mostly because of his left-leaning views on gun policy, which have attracted opposition from the National Rifle Association.

“Get red, wild and blue, America!” There’s a new trailer for Sarah Palin’s Amazing America reality show on the Sportsman Channel and it is way more insane than you ever thought it could be. The show released a teaser video last month, but it just consisted of Palin’s silhouette over an full screen American flag and quotes about how awesome she was.

WASHINGTON — An independent review triggered by the Washington Navy Yard killings last year says threats to Defense Department personnel and facilities increasingly are coming from within. It says the department must rethink its outdated security theory that suggests defending the perimeters can keep threats away. Instead, it says that terrorism, espionage and even physical threats are coming from trusted insiders. The report recommends cutting the number of workers who hold security clearances, conducting better and routinely updated background checks, and setting up a system to evaluate and handle employees who may pose a threat.

A Startlingly Simple Theory About

There has been a lot of speculation about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Terrorism, hijacking, meteors. I cannot believe the analysis on CNN; it’s almost disturbing. I tend to look for a simpler explanation, and I find it with the 13,000-foot runway at Pulau Langkawi. We know the story of MH370: A loaded Boeing 777 departs at midnight from Kuala Lampur, headed to Beijing. A hot night. A heavy aircraft. About an hour out, across the gulf toward Vietnam, the plane goes dark, meaning the transponder and secondary radar tracking go off. Two days later we hear reports that Malaysian military radar

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin declared Tuesday that Russia has no designs on any other parts of Ukraine beyond Crimea. In a speech to a joint session of parliament, which he used to call for the “reunification” of Crimea with Russia, he said that the region has a special role in Russian history that makes it unique. But he also promised that Russia will do what it must to protect the rights of Russians living abroad -- which suggests that he intends to play a role in restive eastern Ukraine, with its large Russian population.

CHICAGO – Best-selling author Kevin Trudeau, whose name became synonymous with late-night TV pitches, was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday for bilking consumers through ubiquitous infomercials for his book, "The Weight Loss Cure ´They´ Don´t Want You to Know About." As he imposed the sentence prosecutors had requested, U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman portrayed the 50-year-old Trudeau as a habitual fraudster going back to his early adulthood. So brazen was Trudeau, the judge said, he once even used his own mother´s Social Security number in a scheme. "Since his 20s, he has steadfastly attempted to cheat others for his own

Pope Francis has nixed a would-be meet and greet with the creative team behind “Noah,” including star Russell Crowe, director Darren Aronofsky and Paramount vice chair Rob Moore, which studio executives had been scrambling to schedule as a photo-op, Variety has learned.

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures
