If you're interested in newspapers, magazines, books and have been caught on the Internet, then this book is something to consider. It's not a screed or a polemic, but a breezy account of the proof that the more things change the more they remain the same. We need help. And it's there.
Ms. Johnson certainly strikes you as someone who cares deeply about all these things, but who also has the light touch to keep anyone from moaning into despair. She's surely one who would help even a shy boy scout usher the elderly across the street--and then have something nice for them to eat on the other side.
There's more optimism in this book than someone playing with loaded dice.
