Falacci is a very compelling writer. I waited about a year after 9/11 to read Rage and Pride, but when I finished, all the rage was right back, and I walked around soooo angry for days. We forget too easily. Falacci should be required reading in all colleges. Unfortunately, that isn't going to happen.
I hate it when fascinating stories are posted in the middle of the night ( I awaken at 4:30 am each day)
