have you read gore vidal's "Burr", lance?


I hear that those in charge of the water-torture devices at Abu Ghraib spoke of Cheney in similar tones of reverence and respect.


Dang. That's what I get for not checkin' with the MannionMeister.... I'm quoting reviews of Henry Adams and the Making of America at The Street, while you're reading the actual-factual book. I'm such a fraud.



I have read Burr. It's one of my favorite novels, although I don't like any of the other books in Vidal's series.

Ned, not to be too smug about it, but I'm also trying to read Adams' History right along with Wills' book.

Operative word there is trying.

Matt, I don't know about that. Cheney's own wife doesn't seem to like him. At least, she's made him the villain in several of her novels. Burr was genuinely likeable, apparently. Didn't stop Jefferson from hating him though.
