Every now and again you come across something fun, original and thought-provoking. Part biography, part satire and wholly unique is Michael Webb's perspective on what ails political leadership in our country (and perhaps the rest of the world ). "Why is it," we ask ourselves, "that whoever is leading (feel free to insert your favorite political group or corporation here) can't make basic decisions rooted in common sense?." Or, "Why do so many leaders often fall into the same self-serving role as their predecessors?." Though the story he tells is mainly thought-provoking look at the political sphere, there is a scary truth behind it that is reminiscent of the issues that resulted in Frank Norris' 1902 anti-trust novel "The Octopus." When you realize that over one hundred years have elapsed since that epic novel on human hubris, you realize that nothing has changed for numerous people in power, and you will wonder along with Mike, "Whatever happened to common sense and decency?." That is something really worth thinking about.
