Will you buy it to find out what happened?

Is the title missing a '?' ?

I'll read reviews and listen to commentaries.

The title is not missing a question mark.

There are people out there who do not know what happened?

Maybe someone I know will buy it and I'll read it. I don't mind some self-serving historical memoirs. Cut my teeth on Caesar. Certainly admired the persuasive rhetoric of Churchill's history of WWII even where I knew he was wrong. But Clinton is not an inspiring writer and the exercise of contrasting what she thinks with what I think may not be worth the effort -- from either direction.

What were you possibly looking for that lead you to that rag? :)

I was looking for some alternative perspective when Ferguson was in the news. Since then I look in once in while. As I stated the other day in a different thread, it is interesting what stories they run and what they dont. The comments section is usually the most informative.

The piece is not offensive, just very juvenile!

Well, that's yet another book I won't buy or read.

I was never much of a Hillary fan, even from long ago, although having her in the Oval Office is being proven to have been a vastly better choice that the carnival barker in there now....

...however, what little she's had to say, since the election loss, hasn't burnished her image... quite the opposite, I'd say.
