A Question and an Observation


A Question and an Observation

Peter Schultz


            What was it about being an American and an upstanding American at that, that led my brother, Charlie, to think he had the right to go to Vietnam and kill Vietnamese?  Did he learn this at Metuchen High School? Did he learn in the Indian Guides or the Boy Scouts? Did he learn it at Muhlenberg College? Did he learn it from the Star Spangled Banner? Just wondering where that idea came from.


            The observation: If you expecting a lot from living in America, remember that even Elvis Presley got screwed! As George Carlin use to say: “It’s called ‘the American dream’ because you have to be asleep to believe it."
