    Yeah, sniping, trashy, conspiracy theory books. Happy Holidays. Stanford U. has fallen.

    One more good suggestion -- GABBY, A STORY OF COURAGE AND HOPE by Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly. Gabby Gifforts is, or should be, an example and an inspiration to all of us.

    I see where Sowell has now become a liberian, making seasonal book recommendations, too bad he does not know the difference between fact and fiction, had he, his listing of the Folsoms's book on FDR and Coulter's dime novel should have been listed under the heading fiction. Instead he listed them with the works on Musial and A&P as if they were non fiction.
