The surest sign that the Democrats will lose the recall vote there today: “Mainstream media escapes from Wisconsin.”

Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs." --San Antonio Express-News

    This piece is spot-on. Funny – I just told my friends here at work today the same thing – that I’m 100% confident Walker will prevail. WHY?? Because not ABC, nor CBS, nor NBC even MENTIONED the Recall on their network newscasts last night – a sure sign they think “their side” is going to LOSE ! ! You know darn well if Walker was about to be ousted, it’d be the lead story. Now they’re obviously trying to downplay the whole thing, pretending it isn’t important & that a Dem loss in WI doesn’t portend bad things for their side in Nov. A far cry from a few months ago, when the protests were given front-page & lead-story coverage…

    Oh just wait until tomorrow when they all run stories about voter suppression and the evils of businesses spending money in elections.
