    Reality is sometimes very strange. Bruce Brugmann's weekly Bay
    Guardian is, all in all, simply the best newspaper in the
    country. From a progressive point of view and even in terms of
    its pro-organized-labor stance in unioning drives and conflicts
    local, national, and international, it is in a class by itself.
    And because it is free and supported entirely by ads, it is also
    probably the most widely-read print in San Francisco.
       That may be hard to swallow, but it's true.
       No, I don't write for it, and David Bacon's review in it of my
    Saying No To Power was a polemic over socialism, which is not
    what my book is about.
