Steve Allen Speaks His Mind
from the book jacket cover)
once wrote that "In any inventory of the natural resources on this planet,"
Steve Allen's conscience is "high on the list." It is this wonderfully
prolific, highly educated conscience which prompted each of the articles included in But
Seriously...Steve Allen Speaks His Mind.
Such a dynamic, energetic conscience has encouraged Allen
throughout his career as a author and entertainer to examine the innumerable facets of
modern American society, identifying the many problems which desperately need to be
corrected and developing provocative new solutions to do so.
Allen's razor-sharp insights always cut to the core of the issue,
whether the topic involves labor relations, the atomic bomb, gifted education, or the
lessons to be learned from the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
This collection of speeches, articles, personal
correspondence, and other writings constitutes a well-reasoned anthology filled with good
humor, irony, and a deep concern for the human condition. Allen's devotion to common
sense and serious social involvement carves a path for others to follow.
