Dan Rather and Cal Thomas love Bruce Kauffmann’s History Lessons, and so do editors

“Bruce, thanks for sharing your History Lessons with me. In a day when the closest we get to history is instant replay, you are teaching things many have forgotten or didn’t know. This is a very useful service.” – Cal Thomas, Syndicated columnist

Encomiums from editors

“Perhaps the best decision I made all year.” – Canton Repository Editorial Page Editor Gayle Beck, on the first-year anniversary of her decision to pick up History Lessons

Regards.” Gunnar Carlson, Editor, Muskegon Chronicle
