Hi JONATHAN, I must get a book by Richard Holmes, I have missed something obviously. Isn't that a good quote? Investigating, listening, to those in the past, romantic isn't it?
There is a possibility that someone from the Frances Perkins Center (see link in the heading) may participate in our discussion in some manner. The executive director was out of town but her assistant answered. We'll have quite a good crowd to investigate and listen to Frances Perkins and her knowledge of the years of the depression, FDR and all his political friends, Eleanor, the social scene and her own tragic life.
At a time when our economic news is worsening, perhaps the past can give us ideas for how to survive the present.
My State of Ohio is in financial trouble as are other states. It is in our constitution that we must live within our budget so policies and departments are being threatened, libraries included.
Tighten the belt, pull in the stomach, keep the purse hidden.
