PROGRAM & EVENTS CALENDAR

Chris Forte

Ambassador
Book:
I don't really have a favorite book, other than old standards like The Bible and the Catechism. However, as a connoisseur of history and culture, a book I just started reading is, "Born Fighting: How the Scots-Irish Shaped America," by James Webb.
Song/Music:
My favorite song is very dark: "My Friend of Misery," by Metallica. Without going into it here, it sums up my life perfectly.
Movie:
It's way too difficult to pick a favorite movie, from standards like the Star Trek ones to westerns like Tombstone and mob films like Road to Perdition (that showed the Irish side of things), my taste in movies is varied and one doesn't really stand out the most.
Pastime/Activities:
My favorite pastime or activity is hiking and exploring nature.
Quote:
