Books: Standing Firm by Dan Quayle
I listened to this abridged book on tape. I was happy it was abridged. I’m actually a fan of Quayle’s – but he spends the entire book griping at others instead of putting forth a vision of where the country should go.
Great article in the most recent
Economist — i highly recommend reading it:
The great American political divide, as seen through the congressional districts of Nancy Pelosi and Dennis Hastert
Some good quotes:
“Only 35% of San Franciscans own their own houses, compared with a national average of 70%.”
“But San Francisco now has one of the lowest proportions of families with children in the country (it has more dogs than children, say some). Almost 70% of the population is single.”
This is a very interesting analysis of a survey by Gallup:
Gallup Poll Analyses – Abortion Attitudes Today
Surprisingly to me, it actually shows attitudes toward pro-life gaining ground among the American public.
