The Coming World Government

(Continued from Page 1)

A book review criticizes the new liberal wisdom that children will be scarred for life if their first three years aren't stimulating. Kids are extremely resilient, and their emotional and intellectual development can be normal even if their early childhoods are distressed. Only children who suffer the most severe deprivation are permanently damaged. A piece lionizes Ed McBain (real name: Evan Hunter), America's first great cop novelist. For 40 years, McBain has been a lively and gritty chronicler of New York City life and helped inspire TV cop shows such as Homicide, NYPD Blue, and Hill Street Blues.
