Tv personality Rita Cosby (FoxNews, MSNBC and now CBS) wrote a book which is close to being on the NY Times Best seller list. It is: Quiet Hero: Secrets of my Father’s Past. He, Ryszard Kossobudzki, was in the Warsaw Uprising, Anders’ Army etc. It would be probably the first time ever that the NYT would have a book about someone Polish and Catholic on its list if a few more copies could be sold sooner than later.
