C. M. Barons
C. M. Barons' novel, In the Midst Of, retro intrigue-
offbeat 1970's rewind. Cunning allusions, stand-out characters, absorbing
tension and settings most Rochesterians will recognize. Brian can't escape
his past, namely, Hollis; bad boy with more secrets than Karl Rove. Hollis
is the aim, sure as the bull's eye on any Zen-archer's target. "...a fine
new American novel. Barons has the cosmic curiosity of Emerson, the appetite
of Whitman, and the talent of Kerouac." Rod Clark,
original, highly ambitious in scope and totally offbeat," Bill Chinaski,
Alternative Reel "...a gourmet meal! This book is a rarefied taste treat for
the mind and spirit!" W. H. McDonald, The American Authors Association

"With the prominence of the U.S. president and the presidency, the
executive office and its occupant have naturally found their way into
numerous cinematic expressions. Since 1903, presidents have been featured
in no less than 407 commercial films. Ranging from respectful,
biographical presentations to comic caricatures, the ways in which
presidents are depicted on film reflects a great deal about contemporary
perception of the office.
This volume examines how filmmakers and their public have viewed the
presidents and the presidency over the past 100 years. The book presents
an all-inclusive list of commercial theatrical films that include an
actual American president as a character, excluding documentaries,
television productions and fictional characters. At times these roles are
minor while in other instances they form one of the main characters of the
film. In either case, however, an analysis of these depictions reveals a
great deal about the president—and the filmmaker. The main body of the
work is devoted to an examination, arranged in chronological order, of
each of the 42 men who have served as president. A brief summary of each
administration is provided along with a commentary on the overall nature
of films in which the featured president appeared. Each relevant film is
then discussed with the credits, plot summary, description of the
presidential appearance and, when possible, an assessment of the
presidential portrayal included. Photographs from notable films are also

Pulitzer finalist three other times in the past three years. The tax

Over his 37 years in journalism Johnston hunted down a murderer whom the
police failed to catch and won freedom for an innocent man, stopped one of
the richest men in America from taking $333 million from a charity for
poor children, was the first reporter to expose the brutality, political
spying and ineffectiveness of the Los Angeles Police Department and caused
two television stations to lose their licenses for news manipulations.
