Dallas County Now Has Its Very Own Bulletproof, “Mine-Protected” Military SUV. JWR Adds: An anonymous reader in Oregon wrote: “Yesterday I was driving by the Clackamas (Oregon) County Shops and Motor-pool and saw one of these MRAPs, identical to the one pictured in the article. Same paint too. It was sitting in the “repair or modify” area next to the road department trucks and sheriff’s department boat, across the street from the sheriff car storage area. I doubt it’ll stay tan for long.”

Jeff Ayers of Booklist posted this announcement and mini revew of Expatriates: “Rawles’ latest novel, set during a future global collapse, features characters in different parts of the world coping with life stripped of modern conveniences and technology. It’s a bit like the NBC television show Revolution but on a more global scale. People must rely on each other, and trust is as big a commodity as gold or silver. The novel follows Survivors (2011) and Founders (2012), both of which follow concurrently what Rawles calls “the coming collapse,” making it possible for readers to jump into the beginning of the end at any point. For dystopia and action fans.”
