Janet Maslin: It’s Okay to Question Authority

Janet Maslin tries to pluck the best stuff out of The Daily Show’s America (The Book): A Citizen’s Guide to Democracy Inaction and then ends by proclaiming its superiority to the Onion‘s Fanfare for the Area Man, although, she says, “both trade on an obvious but all-important notion: that not even our most sacrosanct institutions are beyond questioning.” Thank you, Janet.
