+Rob Zimmerman Yes it is, and I can relate. When folks my age were in grammar school the high schoolers were part of the late end of the Baby Boom, folks born in late 50s to early mid 60s. Actually the baby boomers should be split into two generations and so does.X. The early boomers born in late 40s and early 50s fought in Nam, were the yippies or conservative and had kids young right out of HS, lived through early integration and the civil rights movement. Folks who are boomers born after '55 until '64 were already part of for the most part of an integrated society, decided to marry latter and party like heck during the height of the sexual revolution (which was actually from mid 70's up until Aids outbreak) and Vietnam was already over and so was the draft. Early X'ers born from early mid 60s to about '72 can recall pre digital world and the fads of the 70s and the influence the Boomers had on society Carter and Reagan presidencies etc  Late Xers born in late 70s can only recall later years of Reagan and things were already going digital by the time they can remembers things. Probably can't remember Iran Hostage Crisis, Olympics boycott, Star Wars original films, Challenger disaster, Grenada, height of Cold War etc. etc. .

What would you ask a slave? This historical reenactor finally gets to answer questions the way she always wanted to at Mt. Vernon.

She could have just quit. It's not like anyone held a gun to her head and said, "You're a slave now."

Just finished it. Really enjoyed it. So many layers going on - the life of a modern immigrant, nostalgia vs. reality, trying to find love on the internet, trying to get over your own demons and meet people who are over their own, etc. Great stuff.

"No tricks were used"? Really? This guy is a magician - tricks were definitely used.

Moving that scaffolding must have been a costly affair for sure.

I am attracted and repelled...
The real estate listing for 3970 Spencer St. shows a foreclosed two-bedroom on a suburban street east of the Las Vegas Strip. That's nothing remarkable in Vegas, which has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the country, but this house is special: It's 25 feet unground. A high-end fallout shelter built in secret, it's a small monument to the Cold War--as well as the dream of post-War suburbia in the American west.

Nooo, I think sending them to Iraq would be just the thing-maybe someone could arrange a visit to Mosul.

Introduction
A delightful blend of chimpanzee and bonobo, with just a soupçon of neanderthal. I live in Denver with my superstar poet wife, +Kathryn, and our 70-pound Vizsla-Pit-Bull-German-​​Shepard-Husky mix, Rollie.

I love books. I'm currently reading 
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle and
Rewilding the World by Caroline Fraser.

A few of my favorite books: 

Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
The Sparrow - Mary Doria Russell
I Should Be Extremely Happy In Your Company - Brian Hall
Alan Mendelsohn, the Boy from Mars - D. Pinkwater
Libra - Don DeLillo
A Confederacy of Dunces - John Kennedy Toole
The Dispossessed - Ursula K. Le Guin
Was - Geoff Ryman
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
To Kill A Mockingbird - Harper Lee
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time - Mark Haddon

A few of my interests: 

The 1939 World's Fair
Fats Waller

Fiction
The Environment
History 
The Evolution of Languages, of Humanity, and of Life Itself, 
Stereo Photography, Panoramas, Miniatures, Fakes, and other Visual Trickery 
The Coen Brothers
Abe Lincoln
Maps
Ending Slavery
and, in the words of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, "building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world."
Bragging rights
Was born with pretty much the best birth defect ever: No wisdom teeth. But I'd almost rather have gotten tetrachromatic vision. Oh well.
