35. Very interesting!

I was telling my son yesterday, about my cousin's experience in 1960. He ran several of the democratic campaign offices in rural, upstate New York. One was in Norwich, a small "city" that is the seat of Delaware County. In my book on the experience of Irish immigrants in NYS, towards the end I wrote about how he was pulled over and ticketed by local police, five weekends in a row. (He later corrected me: it was six times!) The police told him, "We don't want your type around here."

That's from my father's side of the family; they were all solid FDR Democrats. My mother's side was split, between socialists (the white ones), and Onondaga (non-participants in US politics).

We came of age in the same era. And it sounds as if we had some of the same good influences on our thinking!
