Gone with the Wind

           Last night we watched the first part of Gone
With  the Wind.  What a wonderful movie, even for
a self-appointed critic such as myself, who involuntarily notices loopholes in the storyline. The grandeur, the costumes, and Rhett's dry humor are great. Scarlettt's self-deception and denial are reminders to keep one's own reality in check. And, it's a reminder, as well, of how precious things are that we tend to take for granted... food and other provisions, freedom, the comfortable easy-going lifestyle of the mountains. Just as Scarlett and the others had to adjust to change, I fear we will also have to.  I pray our American way of life is not gone with the wind...
