    Here's a couple of interesting book reviews on a relevant topic--liberal myths/lies/fantasies.

    Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity by John Stossel.
    Being a longtime media insider, Stossel is well positioned to talk about the media's gross lack of understanding that often becomes part of the conventional wisdom. Some topics covered:

    --starving people and overpopulation
    --outsourcing destroys good jobs, and the new jobs created are inferior hamburger-flipping jobs.
    --global warming

    John Stossel's Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity exposes the false basis for the public fright often caused by an uninformed media and academic elite. Exposure is precisely what's needed because politicians use public fright as a means to gain greater control over our lives.

    Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies by Gregory Jackson.
    All sorts of political and media spin are shot to pieces by hard facts. The book goes literally from A to Z, with 26 chapters covering subjects from abortion to zealots who are terrorists. Some topics covered in this book review:

    **separation of church and state
    **President Bush's education record compared to John Kerry's and Al Gore's
    **Republicans are the party of wealth: Democrats are the party of the little guy.
    **Racism

    I got that book. It's quite good. I like the part about price gouging saving lives.
