Okay, this is a children's book that I wrote as a class assignment in 1986 or 87. You can see that even back then I had a VERY LEFTIST point of view. My teacher didn't like it very much. She liked parts of it like the snapshots of Dad and Grampa but thought I oversimplified the politics and then "threw it all back in God's hands" at the end. In my defense, it was a children's book. Shouldn't it be SIMPLE? I think Dr. Suess would've liked it. In fact, I think the Butter Battle Book came out shortly after I finished this. I find it quite amusing and very 80's. I was such a little subversive!
