"Nanny State" book is out

Denver Post columnist David Harsanyi performed a great service in spreading the word regarding the injustice Thomas Klocek encountered from DePaul University when he tried to defend Israel from spurious attacks from some Muslim students at a 2004 student activities fair. While appearing on the O'Reilly Factor in 2005, he brought up the Klocek affair during a discussion about Ward Churchill, who was fired this summer for academic misconduct.

And from writing a column to writing a book is where Harsanyi has gone, and the result is out, Nanny State: How Food Fascists, Teetotaling Do-Gooders, Priggish Moralists, and other Boneheaded Bureaucrats are Turning America into a Nation of Children.

Regular readers of this blog know Chicago is a hot-bed of Nanny-Statism, as the below posts will explain:
