From America's favorite television reporter--wise and hilarious commentaries on the always fragile human condition.

In this one-of-a-kind book, we get the undiluted David Brinkley. He marvels at government regulations that require paint cans to bear a label reading "Do not drink paint." He reminisces about a White House that once welcomed casual picnickers on its lawn. He observes that "if we can put a man on the moon, we could put Congress in orbit." He skewers lawyers, bureaucrats, Washington insiders, hypocrites of all stripes. He commemorates absurdity--and hence suffers fools gladly. This collection is Brinkley at his unbeatable best.

Review:

This is a selection of Mr. Brinkley's favorite short commentaries, compiled from those he delivered over the last 15 years as host of "This Week With David Brinkley." Brinkley brings his weighty bearing, rich tones, dark humor, and acerbic wit to bear on the problems of the day and editorializes on the political questions of Washington. He is often funny in his irreverent dismissal of politicians and his world-weary resigned attitude to intractable issues both large and small is curiously appealing.

From the Back Cover:

"[A] gem . . . [Everyone Is Entitled to My Opinion] provides both a nostalgic look at the famous curmudgeonly sweetheart of TV news and a reminder that good reporting sometimes comes packaged in the small ironies of daily life."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"A simply wonderful collection . . . Amusing, astounding . . . You will laugh and you'll become thoughtful but most of all you will enjoy this book."
--The Ellenville Press

"Gentle, courteous, and restrained though his manner may be, his comments contain a neat rapier-thrust of amiable malice, and in the course of the book many pieces of armor are pierced. . . . [Everyone Is Entitled to My Opinion] will pleasantly beguile."
--Library Journal
