I’m trying to learn regular expressions at the moment -does anyone know of a good tutorial or advice on how to practice and improve, btw?- using a couple of good books (I and II), while, at the same time, I try to improve my knowledge of american budget politics. This has led me to read stuff about congress, legislature and in general about American Politics.
Something frustrating is the extent to which titles are highly uninformative of the sort of book you are likely to read. Exaggerating only a bit, I fantasize with the idea of coding a random generator of titles following the pattern:
[::Institution::|::actor:|::procedure::] and [::Institution::|::actor::|::procedure::]: [::random comment::]
“Legislatures and voters: an electoral view”
“Politicians and elections: representation matters”
“Presidential appointees and congress: a behavioral analysis”
“Senate and parties: why votes count”
I could keep going for hours. Note something funny about the above: the four titles could name basically the same book- I should say I have often the feeling that many of those books are very similar too. Looking at the table of contents is not more informative either.
