I completely enjoyed this collection of essays. I started with the Robinson (Onward Christian Liberals), then cherry picked all the political/war essays, and finally started from the front and read all the remaining ones. My favorite essays were by Robinson, Scarry, Singer, Buruma, Danner, Gessert, and Grief. I also enjoyed the essay on the dog whisperer because I'm addicted to that show on t.v. (I had no idea he was an illegal immigrant).
