How about this comment?
You remind me of the author of the book you are reading - takes hugh chunks of other writer's work without any recognition. I'm not sure I want to read something from someone who is an admitted plagiarist.
This wasn't a one time accident or oversight - Doris Kearns Goodwin is a serial plagiarist. What's even worse she won a Pulitzer prise for one of her plagiarized books.
Good Lord, this is a new low even for you IC. To attack a writer merely because I commented favorably toward her.

Can anyone in the class tell us why so many of our historians refer to the Dust Bowl as the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history?

Haha, totally kiddin', of course. The documentary enlightened me as to how much worse it was than I'd ever known. I cried so hard watching the devastation and listening to the survivors' accounts.

It is still being aired on PBS stations, but taking the chance that someone might want to view it online, it can be done here...

Hehe, carry on and have fun everybody. Having fun is a very important part of life.

I am sure alot people do watch documentaries and watch Fox news as well as others. Just because Fox news hurts your feelings when you watch it because you are so brainwashed or stupid does'nt give you the right to judge.
Oh thats right you are a far left liberal you dont know any better.
What are you heavily medicated? Or were you born that way?
All you had to say was "I look foward to seeing this documentary"
See there, thats all you got to do instead of being such a judgmental bitty.
Hopfully this will help your social being.
Try to spread a kinder karma.
this was agreat program.Those people had nothing and no one to turn to.Thank goodness for the government.Roosevelt started programs that provided them with jobs that let them exist.The W.P.A. and C.C.C. the republicans fought these programs tooth and nail.Just like they do every progressive program today.They called Roosevelt a socialist and a communist,just like they are calling Obama.How many more of the dust bowlers would have died without the Gov. aid?The republicans called these programs make work,yet many of the structures built by them still stand today.Watch this program and think about similarites today,not that anyone is suffering like those people,but compare views that are the same today.Anti environment, anti gov.,aid, cries of socialism etc.Seems conservitives never learn. No wonder liberals are called progressives.

You are the one who should read history.The government tried to introduce conservation measures and they were opposed by republicans they opposed every form of help offered by the gov. Read my last post and tell me Im wrong.And please tell me the last time fox news told the truth.
