DA Book Club Edition: White House Ghosts
Posted by Heather Hurlburt

For years, I have been telling aspiring writers that Peggy Noonan's What I Saw at the Revolution is the best book on White House speechwriting, and for years been getting funny looks back from people who know her mostly in her Jesus-sent-dolphins-to-save-Elian Wall Street Journal phase.  (I learned a great lesson on how the Web works when my positive mention of it from early Arsenal days went up on a million right-wing websites.)

Now, I'm happy to say I can recommend a progressive:  Robert Schlesinger's White House Ghosts, just out, combines a good look at history with the kind of you-are-there nuggets that I prize in Noonan's writing style.  His stuff on the 1960s -- when his father wrote speeches for Kennedy -- is particularly worth perusing in light of the situation we are in today, and for anyone thinking ahead about what a next administration will face and how it can succeed or fail.

It costs me something to write this, I have to admit -- I had a lengthy interview with the author, the tape of which was later lost.  So, contrary to all Washington rules, I am plugging a book in which I ought to appear but do not. 

Still a great read.

Yesterday, my boyfriend gave me a lot of FFXI Giland he told me that the FFXI gold is useful for me to go into the net game. At the same time, the Final Fantasy XI gold is the gift for my birthday and I will buy FFXI Gil to thank him because it is not free for him.

According to the agreement of the game, I should get the Scions Of Fate gold to go into the world of the game and SOF gold is sold by some companies. The Scions Of Fate money is not free and it will take some money to own the cheap SOF gold.
