  •  Read 11/22/63, Stephen King's book. (4+ / 0-)

    I was 14 when JFK was assassinated.  I lived in that era.  The book took me back so powerfully it altered everything.  Even as an aware person I've forgotten what it was really like- time can do that.  It made me even more determined to fight back.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

    •  Good book (4+ / 0-)

      I may read it again.  It really did give you the sense of being back in that era again and it seemed to cover the topic pretty thoroughly.  

      Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

      •  Yes, without neon lights. It was low-key (0+ / 0-)

        and accurate about racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-semitism and the casual violence women and children were subject to.  That's the power, just describing reality.
