Just finished the book and it's terrific -- great synopsis by the reviewer. I live in the Tucson area and am very conservative. But right-wing talk-radio here is predictable, uninformative and a time waster. No original thought or leadership (kind of like your flagship newspaper there in Phoenix, and ours in Tucson). I believe we're all a lot closer on the issues than much of the media -- liberal and conservative -- lead us to believe. My advice? Get involved, talk to your neighbors, and start making a difference.
