Oooooh, this Crichton business is starting to heat up. There is a post on The Intersection that mentions a review of a book by Fred Barnes, called ‘Rebel-in-Chief: Inside the Bold and Controversial Presidency of George W. Bush’. The review says that the book says that Dubya may have got some of his loopier ideas on climate change from Michael ‘award-winning journalist, actually’ Crichton himself.
Okay, so this isn’t exactly first hand news yet. But as Chris at The Intersection says, this looks to be the sort of book that will set the blogosphere alight once it’s been read and dissected.
