Son of the Great Society Author:Art Buchwald About President Johnson: "I worship the very quicksand the President walks on." — About the Pet Show: "I happened to be one of the judges...The Kennedys, the Shrivers, and the Smith children walked off with about 20 blue ribbons and five Secret Service men had to escort me off the grounds through a crowd of lynch-minded mothers. But it could hav... more »e been worse. Lyndon Johnson could have entered his beagle, and then I really would have been in a fix."
(from the back cover): Buchwald's eye for the feebles and foibles of mankind is sharper than ever in this witty and delightfully irreverent new book. Although he calls himself 'Son of the Great Society,' some people think of him as another kind of a son.« less
