Its diverse contributors include Philip Roth, Ben Franklin, Willa Cather and W.E.B. Du Bois. My friend Joel, an America-loving New York intellectual, gave me the book as a gift. He opens it every night at random and always finds something valuable. Now so do I." --Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal"Indispensable . . . Should become The Book of Virtues for patriots." --Mona Charen, nationally syndicated columnist
