What We've Lost

Two poems, Two Hollywood entertainers, 35 years apart:

Jimmy Stewart, WW2 AND Vietnam veteran, Brigadier General, Movie star, all-around great guy. Republican.
Ashley Judd, Actress, Activist. Democrat.

"Yes, life has a glitter now--of a sort. That's what's wrong with it. The old days had no glitter but they had a charm, a beauty, a slow-paced glamour."
    Ashley Wilkes to Scarlett O'Hara, Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell's timeless classic and a book everyone should read at least once in their lifetime.
