Sometimes there's a reporter in the audience when I promote one of my books. That was the case when I spoke in Boston recently. The resulting column by Peter Golden in the Waltham, Ma., Daily News Tribune, may have gone a little overboard in suggesting a job for me in the next presidential administration, but I appreciate the thought. The illustration, reprinted here, deftly depicts the impact of America's declining reputation. I may use it in future presentations myself. You can read the column itself here.
