I loved Greg Mortenson's book Three Cups of Tea, and Stones. CBS and rehashed by CNN reports today that some of his facts are fiction. Do readers ask for their money back? The stories inspired many military men and women in Afghanistan and Iraq, do we just pretend we are at war for nothing?
Frankly, it does not matter to me if he was held hostage, or what date he traveled to this country. I hope the Central Asia Institute will open it's financial books and disclose what they really spent on schools. If the not for profit fundraising went mostly to advertise the Mortenson brand, then "Lucy you got some 'splaining to do."
The books on their own merit remain in my heart inspirational.
