It may also be that such times are exactly the kick up the arse that a nation needs to wake up to the problems and get back on track ~ it is how such a political system self-corrects and a big part of the reason the US has never fallen all the way into the abyss.
We've had some "big misses", such as the McCarthy period, when anyone to the left of Atila the Hun had their patriotism questioned. That sort of crud is happening again, too. We got over McCarthy, we'll get over this crowd.

Me too

A friend of mine went two years ago and she took lots of pictures of it for me, which makes me want to go even more.

I took my 4th graders there on a field trip. I could not bring them up into the archives. Somewhere in my attick I have a photo-copy of a note from Bobby to JFK about the Alliance for Progress. I did my senior thesis on it in college.

If you need to do a project using primary sources...it is a great place to start.

Again, Mrs. Dread and I, and I am sure Mrs. Springsteen would want to tour it with you!

Peace
