Little Surprises of Bedtime Reading
So I started this massive LBJ book by Robert Caro (the most recent volume) just like I promised you.

Did everybody know about this but me? And then he walks around law school accompanied by these "colossal dogs" that terrorize everybody. And oh yeah, he almost strangles a dude. Here's a quote: "Bobby would have killed him if we didn't pull him off."
