When reading someone's writings, whether via a book or blog, etc., have you ever had a moment where you notice that the author thinks exactly the way you want to, or already do? What were you reading and what about it caused you to have a "He's got it!" moment? For me it's happened a few times but most recently I just started reading The Origin of Species, and after just reading Darwin's introduction, I really like his almost OCD kind of intellectual honesty. He repeatedly talks about the possibilty of flaws in his tests and hypotheses to an almost superfluous degree.

Yes, Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism, validates all my conclusions with lots and lots of facts and history. Up your's Zinn :-P.

Never heard of any of the authors mentioned. I'll have to do some hardcore googling.
