Reviews:

Still bitching about the Patriot Act whittling away your civil rights? Try life in 1798 when sitting President John Adams signed the Sedition Act, a total affront to the free press. Of course, the same guy was instrumental in forging (temporary) peace with England after the Revolutionary War and was an early opponent of slavery. All of this and more is covered in the lauded HBO miniseries, starring Paul Giamatti as the second commander-in-chief. In Stores June 10.
