This is a book to savor, to mull over. Do not plow through it. A book much better to own than to borrow from the library. While I did skip some of the columns, the skipped ones were fewer than I anticipated. However the editors culled their selections, they did an excellent job.
For me some of the most memorable were: Langston Hughes "There ought to be a law", Molly Ivins "A short story about the Vietnam War Memorial", George F. Will "Jon Will's aptitudes", Ben Hecht "Don Quixote and his last windmill", and perhaps the most chilling Murray Kempton "A Woman burned while police had their danish". ( )
