Douglas McGrathWhat stays in the mind is Grant -- a man who, when faced with the twin assaults of death and poverty, raced against one to outwit the other. If Perry's lovely book inspires us today it is not only because of Grant's heroism, but because of the shaming contrast his life offers with the people who guard and guide us now. They use the words he lived by -- patriotism, honor and responsibility -- as masks for their dark mischief, and they twist the language in a way that is a cancer all its own.
