Drop Out Books
John M. Perkins has a hit best seller, "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man." It made fifth on the New York Times non-fiction best seller list. The tell-all book feeds the parnoia of those in the country that believe an evil small group of individuals, though mega-corporations, control American politics, foreign policy and, indeed, life. The State Department has taken the extraordianary step of releasing a report on the book entitled "Confessions--or Fantasies--of an Economic Hit Man" that takes issue with the factual assertions in the book that involve the National Security Agency. But -- we who need to believe in "corporatoracy" all know that the report itself is a product of the evil conspiracy. Good gracious. We need a tell-all book by a tell-all author (Frey??) "Confessions of the Pandering Tell-All Author."

Its hard to decipher your tone here. Do you opine that the book is fiction?
