**Boogers Are My Beat
More Lies, But Some Actual Journalism
by Dave Barry
Reviewed October 20, 2003.
Crown Publishers, New York, 2003. 244 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (814 BAR).
If you like Dave Barry’s newspaper columns, then you will like this book, a collection of some of the best of those columns. Here there is more silly, over-the-top humor with a grain of truth. In this book, Dave Barry makes fun of political conventions, the 2000 presidential election fiasco, parenting a toddler, airport security, and North Dakota.
This book is definitely light reading, but it is good for some laughs. Dave Barry caps the book off with two serious, thought-provoking pieces about September 11th.
