    I only read 100 years. I loved the images of the Buendiá family history. I was not proficient enough in Spanish to read anything but the translation, so I am sure I missed a great deal. As for Faulkner I read As I lay dying and loved it, but Absalom was a chore. I had a girlfriend who went to Ole Miss who kept me plugging away (pun intended).
    I have to guess you could be close to my age ( hope you are not that old ) Yes I think both of us are right about Vietnam , people didn't want to see people they went to school with die. I had 5 very good friends killed over there one die a few after he came back but it was an injury from the war. The reason I say TV ( News ) was cause it was the first real War that was on the news every day. .

    I agree with you. Several of my HS classmates could not get deferents while I was playing college basketball and getting a degree. Some of the letters I received were heart breaking. That wall in Washington was hard for me the first time.
