By Stephen Ambrose. I always thought he was just another lefty. But he wrote Band of Brothers, did the biography of Eisenhower, and did a three-volume set on Nixon, which he concluded by saying "We lost more than we gained when Nixon resigned."

Essentially, he writes about the things he's learned (through research) which makes this country great. Even when his liberal slant shines through, you can tell he was more of a Scoop Jackson Democrat.

He disliked Thomas Jefferson, loved Teddy Roosevelt, and admired US Grant. I think the ACLU may be revoking his membership card.

He disliked Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson loved the French.

Maybe Ambrose wasn't all bad.

teddy was a fucking progressive comie.

Running has an uncanny ability to mellow the soul, to take the edge off hard feelings, and put things back into healthy perspective.
Yeah, it's a 50 caliber. They used to use it to hunt buffalo with... up close! It's only legal in two states. And this isn't one of them.
