Dr. W. Cleon Skousen has had a rich and multifaceted life. He was an FBI agent for many years, then the police chief of Salt Lake City, Utah, author of over 30 books and a full professor at Brigham Young University. After retiring he founded the National Center for Constitutional Studies, the nations leading organization in teaching seminars on the Founding Fathers and the U.S. Constitution. These courses were solid, scholarly and conservative (The text is a hefty seven pounds.)
Now ninety, he still writes a column and heads up a close-knit family of eight children and 50 grandchildren. http://www.renewamerica.us/columns/skousen http://www.skousen2000.com/biography.htm
And here's a tribute from his nephew, Mark Skousen, the well-known conservative author, describing how his uncle influenced the writing of his famous economics text. Fascinating! http://www.mskousen.com/sknews-030128.html

Aha! Good stuff, his resume should precede the list? Part of the problem with stuff like this is the enemy will try to discredit the source - looks like this guy has all his duckies in a row. I'll have to see if I can find a copy of his book.
