Notes on the Atrocities

Hey, are any of you getting this email from Krugman's publicist? Apparently he's alerted them to the fact that we in the blogosphere follow his pronouncements fairly closely--which is fine, as he follows ours, too.

Dear Friends,

A number of you have helped turn Paul Krugman’s THE GREAT UNRAVELING into one of the publishing sensations of the season. We thank you and particularly Paul thanks you. However, many of you have asked, “But what else can we do to encourage a regime change in Washington?”

We think there are three things anybody can do:

1. Give a copy to your local library – college and school libraries are especially appreciative of donations.

2. Order another copy for those in your network who are sitting on the fence and need a little help in determining the extent of the damages wrought by the Bush administration. has a nice price on the book right now:

3. Forward this message to other like-minded people who might not have bought the book just yet.

As Molly Ivins says, "You need to read this book, and when you do, you’ll find there’s only one possible response: it’s time to get mad, for most of the media are in denial about how far the takeover of this country by the radical right has already progressed."

Thanks so much,

Monteiro and Company

I really hope they sent this email to Tom. No doubt he's off donating copies at the local library now. (That's Tom Maguire, the anti-Krugman, who has his usual Tuesday Krugman post up. All right, no more links for you.)
