Booknotes, Sunday, July 25, 1999
Dan Rather discusses Deadlines and Datelines: Essays at the Turn of the Century.

Ranging from the Iraq conflict to poverty in China, tragedies like the Oklahoma City bombing to triumphs in courage, Deadlines & Datelines offers readers a unique chance to share the insights of one of America's premier newsmen. With his distinctive blend of frontline determination and a journalist's knack for a good story, Rather looks at the awesome struggles and everyday accomplishments he's witnessed at home and around the globe. With candor, compassion, and sometimes irreverence, Rather examines how such figures as Madeline Albright, Bill Gates, and Fidel Castro shape world politics and culture. Deadlines & Datelines is not without its lighter moments. In one laugh-out-loud essay, Rather skewers the phenomenon of "dumb bass," or bass that are bred to go after any hook in sight. Chapters include "In the News, Across America," "Politics and Politicians," and "Tributes." Throughout these essays, Rather offers readers a wide range of thought-provoking observations and shows yet again the skill and intelligence that have made him an important part of our world for more than four decades. —from the publisher's website (timspalding)… (more)
