Big Pimpin'

Does the NRO charge ad rates for this garbage, or are these marketing services provided semi-free in exchange for cat sitting and a shipping pallet of Girl Scout Cookies for K-Lo?

The American Patriot’s Almanac, written by bestselling author and former U.S. education secretary William J. Bennett and John T. E. Cribb, has just been re-released in time for Christmas. And it’s a gift in more ways than one. A fan of the book, I took the revised edition as an opportunity to talk to them about teaching children history, living history, the tea party, and, of course, Christmas.

Kathryn Jean Lopez: What’s your target audience for The American Patriot’s Almanac?

William J. Bennett: Anyone who loves this country, and anyone interested in raising a young person to be a patriot. One of our readers called this book a patriot’s daily devotional. That’s a pretty good description.

I'm not sure the lil' Patriot in your life will have time to read this and Liberal Claus, so unfortunately you may have to pick one.
