angry - books


I'm reading the second half of James Fraser's Between Church and State for my RED class, and I hit the line, "Reagan, as he often did, made up the facts to suit his argument" (p. 178).  I've generally quite liked the book, but argh.  And a couple sentences later: "There was little factual basis for either assertion, but such a lack seldom bothered the genial president."  Um, it is actually possible to criticize people people without sounding so insulting.  Sigh.  [takes dinner break]
