    Clever take on current events. I had a great time reading it, and nothing but laughter came out of me. I would really recommend this book!

    All I have to say is.... CLEVER. Very witty and an interesting take on current events. I enjoyed it, my husband enjoyed it and my friends are eager to experience the poetry.

    Betsy Devos is fine by me. Perhaps any candidate Lithgow supports would be reason enough to shun them.
  • Should be sold in non-fiction.
