Susan Jacoby gets space in my Anniston Star

A couple of days ago Susan Jacoby's The dunce factor in America found its way into the newspaper I grew up reading. My old Daddy plus others helped me grow into the Progressive I am today yet reading The Anniston Star surely helped. Then again, merely reading pretty much anything, as Ms. Jacoby seems to argue, may have helped. Her new book The Age of American Unreason is now on my Amazon Wish List. Her Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism was already there. Susan Jacoby is one sharp lady and I need to make a special effort to finally read some of her books. John Gunn
