I enjoy sarah vowell , particularly when she is ranting (and when is she not.)
Only someone who really cares could get that angry
would not appeal, I think, to some one of differing views, though it is an interesting overview of mid90's culture

I quite enjoyed it, though I think a conservative republican might find the asides a bit off putting.
humorous and informative

A fun and informative trip to sites of people who took part in the assassinations of Lincoln, Garfield and others. Filled with trivia and fun anecdotes.
