I haven't read Ms Klein's books but I do like the columns by her that I have read.
The New Yorker interviewed her a few weeks ago as well.
I think she makes a lot of sense. She and the likes of Ralph Nader and Chris Hedges are fairly close to the scary edges of the truth of things.
Re otterpop's "gem" of a quote, I just saw one such in Moby Dick.
"Topheavy was the ship as a dinnerless student with all Aristotle in his head."
