FYI, the book title should be in quotes, "antiwar" is one word and July 3 should be "Thursday" because of the date of the post (June 30). Just a heads-up. You folks have any editors looking at this stuff?

this is a blog, not a newspaper and does not have to conform to newspaper style - saying thursday on a blog would be confusing as it stays posted and no one would think to look to the date it originally was posted to check that against the date of the week
