About this show

At the turn of the last century, the newspaper column of Peter Finley Dunne - written as the fictional Irish Pub owner, Mr. Dooley - was a national sensation. Appearing in almost every major newspaper, Mr. Dooley's 'everyman' take on political and social issues of the day, spiced with his sly humor and political acumen, made Dooley a household name. His syndicated sayings were read aloud at Cabinet meetings of three Presidents, as well as at millions of breakfast tables. In Mr. Dooley's America, we visit Dooley in his tavern as he espouses the same wit and wisdom that rings as true today as it did 100 years ago.
