A guy I know posted a picture on his Web page about a month back of him reading a book called "The 10 Big Lies About America" (he likes posing with books believe it or not). I asked him, since he was apparently reading the book, what those 10 big lies were. I never got an answer. I've heard elsewhere that the book debunks negative viewpoints about our country. If you're interested in learning more, the author - nationally syndicated talk show host Michael Medved - is planning to speak about the book in Sarasota later today.
Medved will be at Temple Beth Shalom, 1050 S. Tuttle Ave., at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15-$30 and includes a copy of his book. He will also hold a book signing from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at the Sarasota Coastal Credit Union, 3000 Bee Ridge Road. The book signing is free to the public.
