Don Bohning is an old-fashioned reporter. That doesn’t mean he is without opinions or biases, and maybe even a prejudice or two. But it does mean that in his long years as a successful reporter — mainly for the Miami Herald — Don felt duty-bound to keep his opinions to himself and to tell the truth as fully, factually, and responsibly as he could.
He has done just that in this, his first book.
That reporting leads (on page 255) to this chilling, and on the evidence so impressively amassed by Bohning, incontrovertible conclusion:
“The legacy of the unsuccessful six-year secret war against Fidel Castro — a legacy that belongs mostly to the Kennedy brothers — is not an admirable one. Among the war’s main negative consequences were the consolidation of Castro’s hold on Cuba, contributing to the Soviet decision to install offensive missiles on the island and spawning a cadre of Cuban exile terrorists perpetrating murder and mayhem far in excess of their relatively small numbers.”

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
