Just finished a book that was much more interesting than I expected. Picked
up David McCollough's book *The Path Between the Seas* about the building of
the Panama Canal. Probably wouldn't have touched it if it hadn't been
McCollough who wrote it, but it was quite interesting. The combination of
engineering feets, leadership disasters, political power plays, economic
working, human brilliance and human stupidity is quite a story.
Worth a read.
