A compilation of some of the editorials -- important from two angles. First, they represent a passing school of personal journalism; second, he ""completely expresses the humanness"" not of just one town but of the entire Middle West -- and reflects every phase of activity and thought of several decades. Brilliant spokesman for every liberal cause and every human cause. The editorials range from the strictly personal to the international, from mince ple to the N R A. Outspoken, familiar, level-headed, and salted with delightful, homely humor. Entertaining reading.
