    books on important subjects are not supposed to support themselves like others do.

    Of course, if Kos promotes his own book on the front page . . . is that okay?

      I've seen time and again that when a relative "nobody" writes a well researched diary that gets perhaps 10 comments, the same topic will be covered, in more or less the same way, by a front pager or a well known writer, and get 100s of comments and lots of Recs.

      Similarly, I've seen candidate diaries which get 100s of enthusiastic comments, even when the candidate barely had time to stick around to interact with those positing.

      Anyway, I for one am glad that you posted here and let us know about your book. As you can probably tell, I agree with what you are saying about McCain and the terrorist Contras, whether or not it is particularly polite or convenient to discuss.

      Whenever I go to an antiwar protest, these kinds of ugly truths about the U.S. track record around the world are certainly put in the spotlight, as is a hopeful belief that we can be better global citizens.

        and I hope it is not McCAin, we will have to deal with the possibility that OUR government will our money to fund terrorists.

        And that some of our private citizens will do the same.

        May we find a way to bomb the world with food and medicine, strengthen civil society, and make terrorism obsolete through food, schools, and medicine.
