Frank Rich on top,
Sam Harris is at #5, and
Dawkins is at #12 and climbing fast. Maybe there’s some hope for us after all—at least the literate segment of our population is pondering interesting views.
We still always get our Pratchett much, much later than the English and the Australians, though, which is so unfair.
