Recently, I was having a conversation with a young person, well younger than me, thirty something, about the Vietnam war. I happened to mention Agent Orange, and she had no idea what I was talking about, had never heard of it, didn’t know that it was a chemical used by the U.S. military during the war to defoliate the rainforests. This is a person with a college degree, and who holds a professional job in the medical field and who is intelligent. So, you just can never assume “everyone already knows this” or that everyone has already seen MLK’s historic speech, for example. So here it is again.
Iowa’s only Democrat Dave Loebsack, will be attending two MLK events today in Davenport and Iowa City.
