Description

Funny, extreme, always provocative essays on the illusions and delusions of America's Imperial Age. Refreshingly incorrect and entertaining. There is something in this book to intrigue, annoy or offend almost everyone. Get a copy before it's banned or confiscated by the Department of Homeland Security. (Carry a copy on a commercial airliner at your own risk.) It makes a better gift than a bottle of screw top wine and you can claim you thought it was a guide to New York brothels. You'll learn little known facts about people and things you never even thought you were interested in. People like Charles Ponzi and Franklin Roosevelt; St. Nicholas and Peter the Hermit; Ben Franklin and Massasoit; and things like why arming our children is a good idea, and thy licensing ferret breeders is a bad one. Collected essays written for his weekly column "The Extremist," published in Key West the Newspaper and elsewhere.
