105. A good read later!
I just skimmed, as I have a huge list of things to accomplish today.
As I skimmed...................My family history, came into sharp focus!
I believe My Grandfather was a Libertarian and follower of these men! ( As well a tryannical authoritarian personality type.) I rmember hearing all these men's names as clearly as if they had been our neighbors....His mail order wallpaper business was 3rd best selling in the USA after Sears & Mongomery Ward. ( self made man from poor background) My parents were very progressive Democrats....... they chaffed under the yoke of the family business ( voting for Adalai Stevenson pursuing creative hobbies.) and finally broke out and as mid-life crisis sold out their share of the business and bought a dude ranch in the Adirondacks. Imagine having to have holiday dinners, AND working for a very conservative Libertarian! There were some pretty heated PBS had that series on economics several years back. Command of the Heights. It was very interesting.
Kick! :kick:
