Total tip of the tam to Fred Kaplan

I recently finished Fred Kaplan's Daydream Believers: How a Few Grand Ideas Wrecked American Power. I had high hopes yet the book proved even better than I imagined. This is one serious book. It is written in a highly readable style. Slate's War Stories provides a two part series with excerpts from the work. Bu$hCo and his neo-conservatives/Vulcans will be judged harshly by history yet those in the press and political arena that allowed them to apply their daydreams deserve scorn as well. John Gunn
