Amy Goodman and her brother David Goodman have written Exceptions to the Rulers (as every member of this community knows) and is out in paperback. You can purchase a copy at the Un-Embed The Media Tour web site or you can purchase a copy at BuzzFlash and many other places online. You can also find it at your local bookstores (it's a bestselling book) and at your libraries.

Since we get more and more visitors, in case anyone doesn't know Amy Goodman, they can see her work at Democracy Now! and they can read Lizzy Ratner's "Amy Goodman's 'Empire" from The Nation.
