The Wordy Shipmates

If The Wordy Shipmates was your cup of Puritan tea, read Nathaniel Philbrick's Mayflower for a dose of some Pilgrim pie.  All that blood shed, in literally my backyard. Yikes! Both books delve into our early history and the parallels to today.  Sarah Vowell was certainly more funny...if that tips the scale for you....

Onto a lighter note...How beautiful is this photo shoot by Karl Lagerfeld?  I remember seeing it in Vogue Deutchsland right around the time I was reading The Wordy Shipmates and falling madly in love! 

Did you know that 10 percent of the United States population are decendants of people who crossed on the Mayflower?

I wonder what the percentage is of Americans whose ancestors passed through Ellis Island.
