Overview

In his most provocative and caustically funny book yet, Greg Palast, author of the national bestseller The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, once again gives us the straight scoop on the stories that Big Media won't report. Digging up reams of documents marked 'secret' and 'confidential,' Palast provides the latest lowdown on Bush's secret plans to seize Iraq's oil, the fix planned for the 2008 election, who drowned New Orleans, and the horror and the humor of the War on Terror. With diligent detective work, moral outrage, and a keen sense of the absurd, Palast takes on the 'armed and dangerous clowns that rule us' as only he can.

(Lemme check...hold on,) As Lilywolf remains unresponsive Goldenstars worry grew. He tried propping her head up more but nothing seemed to work and he didn't have much time. Frowning, Goldenstar knew he had no choice but to take her home. He gave his poor health no consideration and struggled to lift her onto his back, nearly falling over under her weight. He refused to do so however and forced one step after another towards Horseclan, hoping he could make it in time. (Ok I think thats a yes...)
