In the early to mid-seventies we did the bomb drills (I think they called them "emergency drills") where the siren posted on top of the tower right next to the elementary school went off once a month (the first Wednesday, if I recall correctly). At that time the teachers didn't insist we crawl under the desks any more, so that is probably a sign that the fear was waning. I haven't seen any of those sirens in a very long time.

Rehnquist wrote a very interesting book The Supreme Court that not only talks about the history of the court and some of its important cases (he did not include any cases that were decided by any judges that he served with), but he also described very nicely the day-to-day workings of a case moving through the system. I found it to be very interesting reading.

I should add that although I have only written a handful of Amazon reviews, mine are mostly highly rated because products that have work well for me (or at least met or exceeded my expectations) are almost the only ones I write about. If I ended up on the bad end of a lemon, I would probably write a review about it, but that hasn't happened to me. I would like to think that if I was part of a program where I was sent free stuff to use and review, that I would be honest in the ratings I'd give.
