Allow me to add a 4th to that trio... Gabriel Allon. He is a Mossad agent/assassin, ala Mitch Rapp but is more realistic in my opinion. The author of the series is Daniel Silva and is usually focused on terrorism of some sort but also has tales of Vatican intrigue.

If I was ranking the 4 for Baddassness....

1. Reacher
2. Bourne
3. Allon
4. Rapp

FWIW..... John Sanford has a good series of crime books (____ Prey), with Lucas Davenport as the protagonist. Davenport is a lot like Reacher, but he frequently mentions Minnesota wrestling in some of the books, so Im guessing he's a fan.

I still wear my MN Storm wrestling shirt while at practice.  Funny, I'm sure most are thinking Seattle Storm women's basketball.

Props to Brycemus mentioning the books! Reacher was basically, Conan in the 20th century (huge, powerful, athletic, intelligent guy vs his enemies). Cruise could not pull of the physicality of the role, though little guys can do that shit.  His acting ability did a lot....but he's not 6'6".

Supporting cast would have to be munchkins to make it real.

I've been to that naval air station.  Not too far from here.  Somebody is going to be paying a price.

Rained hard last night, wind was hard too.   Knocked out power from 6:30 pm to roughly 1:30 am.  We have a generator but didn't use it.  Just lit some candles, ate dinner that way.  Played a few card games with the kids and went to bed.  Word.

Santana.  I tire of hearing Black Magic Woman and Oye Como Va 50 times a day.

Why would you... oh, wait.  You listen to "radio", don't you?

Listening to the same two songs until you're sick of them isn't much of a way to judge a group.

He's still working off that 8mm cassette he made back in '81.

I will admit I am a dinosaur.  No smartphone, no apps, no way to listen to music other than the local radio.  Or at least I am not versed enough not want to take the time to do Pandora or any other music app service. 

To Ray's point, if the radio would play other songs from Santana or other groups, that would be nice.  We have an NPR station here that does the news and the rest of the time it does Jazz.  I don't like Jazz that much, but on Sat and Sun they play 6 hours of blues in the evening.  I tune in and listen when I'm on the road.  I really like it.  Stuff I've never heard.  But you don't get that on commercial radio. 

There's a song by Grand Funk called Creepin' from their American Band album.  I really like it but never hear it.  I called the radio station, asked them to play it, they said it doesn't fit the program they have.  For being so old, I really like Pearl Jam, Alice n Chains, and Soundgarden.  I also  liked The Screaming Trees when they had some stuff going.  That was a nice reprieve from the soulless bands of the 80's. 

I do have some cassettes.  No 8 track, I always thought those were stupid.  The cassettes were recorded from my LP's that I wanted to save wear and tear on.  I have a bunch of my old LP's still.  But alas, my stereo is not set up and I don't have time to just sit and listen.   

So it's not that I hate Santana so much, I hate what is offered to me with regards to Santana in the car while I'm driving. 

Back to the topic - Anything Disco or Rap.



Off-Topic / Daylight Saving time

My son had a pretty good idea.  Instead of falling back to Standard time, he thinks we just adjust the clock further ahead 2 hours so we have some daylight to get things done at home after work.  I thought that was not a bad idea.
