“I think your death will be the first real thing that has happened to you.”

I finally got to see “The Last King of Scotland” last night.¬†An instance where fiction tells a deeper truth.

I think it’s a shame that American schools do not better intergrate literature and history. Joseph Conrad, Hemingway, Graham Greene . . . . they all carry truths that better explain what has happened. If more Americans were familiar with their work, our politicians might operate under a brighter light and under a higher-power magnifying glass.
