That question is the simple way of describing the focus of my third and final paper for American Experience. The paper is available for reading and sharing if you feel up to reading it. I welcome any feedback you wish to send my way regarding this paper in the form of comments to this blog post. At this point there is not even 2 days left of the academic semester and within 3 days I’ll have not just been home for something like 16 hours but be off on Martha’s Vineyard. It’s kind of amazing how fast the first fourth of college has gone.
