Gerson, 37, is an owlish

Gerson, 37, is an owlish man who fills yellow pads with doodles when you ask him a question. He says he believes that social justice must be central in Republican thought. ''The great stories of our time,'' he told me, ''are moral stories and moral commitments: the civil rights movement, the War on Poverty.'' He and the president get along well. The president calls Gerson ''the scribe.'' They share an intensely felt Christianity.
How they wrote Bush's big speech. Also Two Towers by Katherine Rose Hawkins. p.s. I did not post "what Bush should have said".
