    By Prophet Amos
    Sad, that Geoffrey O’Brien, the editor would not include as many quotes from conservative leaders as he did from liberal authors. It is disappointing that O’Brien could not be objective in his publishing of quotations for this wounderful book. It would have been an excellent book minus the political agenda, truly sad.
