Re: Catch 22


Article read. What a glorious find, Chris. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Quite a good story exquistely told. Brings back memories too. I am of that 60s generation the novel essentially, fundamentally influenced. I read it twice in the early 70s before I was 21. First time I laughed heartily, thought it so funny read it again maybe a year later. Second time, no exaggeration, I cried.

The article brings something else to mind. America might have been a saner place back then. Both able to laugh at itself and with a critical capacity not much in evidence these days.

hey Tere,

I'm really glad you liked the article. Read that book several times myself and think I know what you mean by "essentially, fundamentally influenced."
