PW dollops me with a another 15 minutes of fame in literary circles.  More whipped cream, please - and enjoy the book!
We talked to the author--and sometime screenwriter (he wrote the film adaptation of 'House of Sand and Fog')--about his new novel, managing his wife's campaign (she was just re-elected Minnesota state auditor), and the American Dream.

Really proud of Rebecca Otto for this national recognition. If you like what she stands for (courage, integrity and leadership, says the IIA) support her re-election.

glad to see that you are on this...

here's some pure science in ( what I hope ) is the language of the global public...the question is...does anyone care?
everyday people are way too involved in surviving their everyday life to think ahead about what's good for them...it would be really good if that could change...science has that capacity, eh?
