Climbing Mt. Everest in house slippers -- "'The Death of American Virtue' is so exhaustive that some of it raises doubts about the value of Mr. Gormley's exertions. There are times when this book seems akin to climbing Mt. Everest in house slippers: impressive but not entirely necessary." From a review of "The Death of American Virtue" by Ken Gormley, Books of The Times: Damages: Bill Clinton's Legal Mess, by Janet Maslin, Feb. 15, 2010, New York Times. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/15/books/15book.html?ref=books
