Bill Bennett is a lifelong Catholic famous for his conservative writings. He served as Ronald Reagan's Secretary of Education, and as director ("drug czar") of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) under George Bush.
He writes for the National Review. His best-known work is A Book of Virtues, an anthology of morally uplifting stories drawn from the Judeo-Christian West's literary history. He has been the subject of criticism for losing $8 million in a gambling habit, and a remark he made on his radio show in which he suggested that the crime rate would go down if every black baby were aborted, even though he also said that this would be "impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible".
