I’m off with the family to the Bogue Banks of North Carolina for a week starting tomorrow, but I wanted to pitch my two pennies into the beach blanket reading party.
K-Lo, surely a la Legacy, you understand my need to begin the short list with Brent Bozell’s Weapons of Mass Distortion: The Coming Meltdown of the Liberal Media. (It hits the stores on Tuesday.) How can you spend time at the beach cursing at Dan Rather? Hey, please, sometimes the bias is so over the top, it’s more amusing than upsetting. You want to bug your liberal friends who love Alterman, Franken, and Conason on the so-called liberal media? Get one of these. To use the martial terms Brent so favors, this is the arsenal of media democracy, people.
I’m really looking forward to a few fleeting moments between kiddie fights (wow, you mean you’re fighting over a STRAW?) with G.K. Chesterton’s The Everlasting Man, which was apparently very influential in converting the masterful C.S. Lewis.
