Joseph Ellis writes great books. His Pulitzer winning, Founding Brothers, is absolutely terrific.
Ellis delivers the goods in this accessible, yet scholarly book. And how many scholars can write serious books which the general reading public finds fascinating?
Like Founding Brothers, Ellis delivers another home run. Highly recommended!
Grant Horner teaches Renaissance literature at the Master’s College. He is a stellar teacher and terrific guy.

A STIMULATING TEN MINUTE CONVERSATION:

NO, I DO NOT THINK OBAMACARE IS AWESOME BECAUSE NO ONE CAN KNOW FOR SURE HOW IT WILL EXACTLY WORK. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE DEFINITIVE STATEMENTS ABOUT FUTURE REALITIES BECAUSE EVENTS BY DEFINITION OF BEING IN THE FUTURE REMAIN UNKNOWN. AS OS GUINNESS ONCE TOLD ME, “FUTURISTS MAKE BAD HISTORIANS.”

I HAVE MY OWN THOUGHTS, BUT WILL WAIT TO FIRST HEAR FROM YOU.
