Abstract:

From the famed broadcaster and one of the nation's most-admired public figures, this collection of blisteringly eloquent speeches delivers inspiring words that embody the best of the American spirit. Timely topics addressed include the proper place of religion in public life; the mounting environmental crisis; the struggle to keep public television and radio free of political manipulation and ideological censorship; the appalling culture of corruption and influence-peddling that has nearly highjacked Washington; the heedless, disastrous policies of the Bush administration in Iraq and many other areas.--From publisher description.
