New Deal Funnies

on PBS all week.  The focus is mainly directed to the plight of the midwest population that found their land eaten away by the flying dust, their lungs permenantly damaged by the sharp grains of sand that everyone breathed in, their children dying from the starvation and dust that endlessly clogged the air.

 Watching the show I wondered how in the hell any of them survived......Then they joined the army and went out to die for freedom in WWII.  This was a population that was whipped to near starvation.  Take a look
