I’ve recently heard the news that Thom Hartmann, author of my illustrated book We the People: A Call to Take Back America, is replacing Al Franken on Air America Radio. This could mean good news for our book (which at three printings since March of ’04 is doing pretty well already), but it means even better news for radio listeners.
Thom was already doing well on his decently distributed show (beating Limbaugh in some regions), and he’s a delight to listen to, entertaining, rich with knowledge, and open to a good healthy debate with all who have an opinion to voice. Pretty much the same qualities I like to believe our book has.
Oh yeah! I forgot to tell you:
I gave my dad a copy of your book for christmas (he’s a political science professor) and he enjoyed it quite a bit. He said that he even put it on his “recommended reading” list for students.
Spreadin’ the good word.
Cool news Niel. Any chance you’ll be a guest on the new program?
Not that I know of, but I’m sure if something comics related came up I could be tapped to come on I suppose. It’d probably be pretty fun!
