SONTAG AWARD NOMINEE: “When asked by worried friends and acquaintances whether the President was borrowing his geopolitical theory from the diaries of Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler, I assured them that the President didnâ€™t have the patience to read more than two or three pages of a Tom Clancy novel.” – Lewis Lapham, editor of Harper’s, in the print edition of the October issue (discovered by the More Than Zero blog.)
