    By the way, you mention Goldwater’s Conscience of a Conservative. His name was on the thing, but it was actually written by L. Brent Bozell, Jr. (William F. Buckley’s brother-in-law, co-author with WFB of McCarthy and his Critics, and the father of the Parents Television Council founder.)Report
