Bazooka Joe and His Gang
This little book celebrates the cast of cartoon characters that have kept Bazooka chewers chuckling for six decades (the comics will be replaced by brain teasers and activities this year). It’s a sweet treat for your inner kid.
Lincoln Unbound Exploring Lincoln’s dedication to the values of hard work, discipline, and self-determination, National Review editor Rich Lowry argues that following the example of the president who led us away from slavery can help us escape our current economic malaise.

Lincoln Unbound is a refreshing look at an historic figure. It was pleasant and encouraging to get an alternative perspective of Lincoln and his views. For a non-fiction book this was an easy read. Don't expect this to be a biography of the man so much as a fresh look at his writings and actions of his time and how they relate to our current political climate.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062123785, Hardcover)

Lincoln Unbound is a thoughtful mix of history and politics from Rich Lowry, the New York Times bestselling author and editor of National Review, which traces Abraham Lincoln’s ambitious climb from provincial upstart to political powerhouse.

Revered across the political spectrum, President Lincoln believed in a small but active government in a nation defined by aspiration. He embraced the market and the amazing transportation and communications revolutions beginning to take hold. He helped give birth to the modern industrial economy.

Abraham Lincoln’s vision of an upwardly mobile society that rewards and supports individual striving was wondrously realized. Now, it is under threat. To meet these challenges, conservative columnist Rich Lowry draws us back to the lessons of Lincoln. It is imperative, he argues, to preserve a fluid economy that makes it possible for individuals to thrive and live the American dream.

Revered today across the political spectrum, Abraham Lincoln believed in a small but active government in a nation defined by aspiration. He embraced the market and the transportation and communications revolutions beginning to take hold, and helped give birth to the modern industrial economy. Lincoln's vision of an upwardly mobile society that rewards and supports individual striving was wondrously realized. Now, it is under threat. Economic stagnation and social breakdown are undermining that mobility. To meet these challenges, conservative columnist Rich Lowry draws us back to the lessons of Lincoln. It is imperative, he argues, to preserve a fluid economy and the bourgeois virtues that make it possible for individuals to thrive within it.--From publisher description.… (more)
