New Baker HuffPost Essay, and More Coverage

Russ Baker has a new essay up at The Huffington Post about the USS George H.W. Bush, the Navy aircraft carrier that will be christened on Saturday, January 10th.

This week, Russ also appeared on Judith Regan’s show on Sirius Satellite Radio, taped an interview with Reuters Television for a special program on the Bush legacy, and did a drive-time conversation with Boston’s WBZ.

Common Dreams just excerpted the “Shock and…Oil?” chapter from Family of Secrets at their website. And Frederick Clarkson at Religion Dispatches detailed the ways that FoS “reveals how faith is like a covert operation for the Bush family.” (Please Digg these articles, share them on Facebook, and e-mail them to your friends.
