Doug Wead: Amway Kingpin and "Compassionate Conservative" (As If)

doug wead douglas wead amway quixtar bush In the past few weeks, I have read two excellent books that mention Amway/Quixtar IBO kingpin Doug Wead: The Bush Tragedy by Jacob Weisberg and Bad Moon Rising: How Reverend Moon Created the Washington Times, Seduced the Religious Right and Built an American Kingdom by John Gorenfeld (I discuss The Bush Tragedy here and Bad Moon Rising here). I will write a long post about Wead soon. This guy is a piece of work.

Piece of work?

Oh, he's a piece of something all right.

When will you write the piece on Doug Wead? Will you do a lot of referencing to back up your information?

As luck would have it, just the other day when I was compiling a list of work to do on my blog, the Doug Wead post was high on my list of priorities. I hope to have it up in the next month and, yes, I will include references.
