North Dakota gave the nation Bill Langer. The author is a Liberal Democrat but Langer, even after two generations, still has his admirers from all points of the political spectrum. Geelan is a master story teller and even though I am too young to remember Bill Langer, I can't help but admire how he tweaked the noses of the rich and powerful and served the common man- not in a pseudo-form when the television cameras were rolling or the spin doctors were at work- but in a genuine down-to-earth. Would that politics would produce more Bill Langers!
