I keep my promises!

It's in the Playboy Forum and the article is titled "One Nation, Under Corporate Control: Why Doesn't Our Government Serve the People? Four Prominent Authors Discuss How Corporations Took Over America"

The four authors are Cornell economics professor Robert H. Frank, author of "Luxury Fever" and co-author of "The Winner-Take-All Society"; David Sirota, a campaign strategist and author of "Hostile Takeover: How Big Money & Corruption Conquered Our Government-And How We Can Take It Back"; Paul Stiles, a former Wall Street trader and author of "Is the American Dream Killing You? How 'The Market' Rules Our Lives"; and Louis Uchitelle, a veteran New York Times economics reporter and author of "The Disposable American: Layoffs and Their Consequences"

And Sirota estimated that 2/3 of Democrats are not in a corporation's pocket.

So they don't recommend any books, but I'll probably read some of theirs. Let's see. They all sound pretty good but I'll probably start with academia and read the Cornell prof.'s books. Luxury Fever sounds good. Hopefully our library has them.

I'm gonna grab some dinner. J and I are giving up eating out for Lent (it's a Catholic thing to give something up, I think) so of course we went to the Olive Garden for dinner last night.
