Read it and Sweat

Richard A. Clarke, the terrorism expert Bush fired because he didn't like hearing the truth, has come out with a new spy novel called, "The Scorpion's Path."
An offshoot of his last, nonfiction book that detailed the real story on terrorism, Clarke has been able to offer a shockingly detailed view into today's terrorism-tainted world, without having to kiss the CIA's ass and face the same obsessive, secretive editing process they used on his nonfiction offering.
He's a great writer, using descriptive, visual language that takes the reader into each scene.
And it ain't pretty, folks.
Clarke is sending us a message through this novel- and we'd all be wise to read it and start to sweat.
The Bush cabal is leading us down a path we do not want to be on.
Don't trust me on that, trust Clarke. He's the expert.

The public library may have it- and Amazon.com often sells discounted used copies almost immediately after release of most books.
I plan to read my copy very gently, then give it to someone for Christmas.
In this economy, we have to get creative with how we spend our discretionary income.
