    No it wasn't. It was written by the self proclaimed progressive writer Ken Morris.

    Yes it was. l2read.

    Morris said he, Bailey and Jeanne Devon, who writes a widely read Alaska political blog, spent 18 months writing the book in secret. Morris said that while he was the lead writer who crafted the material into a story with a character arc, the story belongs to Bailey.

    Exactly. But the point is that this guy had to find a progressive writer. That means it is entirely possible that the writer wanted the information to be true, so he didn't check the facts. The article also states that Morris shaped the story. If the writer admits he's biased, we should be very pessimistic about the validity of the content.

    What if David Limbaugh wrote a tell all about Obama...would you really jump to the conclusion that it was 100% true just because he got some e-mails from a former aid?

    No. 5000 emails though? Yeah.

    Also, I'm wondering why she didn't block publication.

    P.S.: Exactly? You just contradicted yourself.

    Well, it was written in secret...I would assume that means she didn't know about it. But, even if she didn't SHE CAN'T BLOCK THE PUBLICATION. It has been established the public officials don't have the same right to privacy as ordinary citizens.

    But we all knew yesterday or earlier. She could have gotten an emergency injunction to prevent release.

    True. A manuscript was leaked in February. She's had plenty of time to try to block it.

    You really don't have a clue what happened with "Troopergate", do you?

    He will get my money as I will eagerly purchase this book.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
