I Love Corner Readers

by Jonah Goldberg

From a reader:


Volcano Cowboys” by Dick Thompson — a sweet read that will tell you plenty about dome building eruptions and related phenomenon — plus the deep skinny on USGS politics, why the nature of the first MSH eruption managed to be such a surprise & what it taught us *really*, how Mammoth Lakes (Long Valley) got strange, and how MSH lessons saved thousands of lives during the Pinatubo eruption.

Even though I spent part of yesterday looking for pegmatite inclusions in a
granite batholith to photograph, I am not a vulcanologist, or even a geologist — just your average polymath & collector of bear jokes.

Cheers!
