Subject: RE: Baez interview. Americans and enemies
Can't beat a schmoo for all around good will!

I think it is part of the American core value system to be hard at work overcoming "the problem", whether it is the spread of communism, the overflowing of the Mississippi or the emptuness of the moon, and preferably as heroically as possible.

. When the walls of the USSR began coming down, it was the end of a game we had been hard set into for forty years or more; so it isn't surprising that it caught some people off-guard and not sure what the next challenge should really be!
