Introduction Barber's son, born and raised in a gritty, hard-working railroad town. State schools and GI Bill massively enlarged my life chances. Convinced American government runs on bullshit. Disgusted with politician's hollow posturing and TV's shallow coverage. Increasingly convinced we have the best government money can buy and that we only get the justice we can afford.
