Few people today realize how similar the Revolutionary era was to our own: Endless war, financial crashes and mounting public debt, popular outrage against rich bankers and taxation, and such bitter partisan dispute that Congress was frequently deadlocked for months on...

As a senior in high school, Scott E. Dickinson liked to daydream about owning a shiny red Ferrari and real estate with sweeping views of the Southern California coastline. But his dreams did not include a college education. "He was just floating through life," recalled his mother, Pauline Dickinson. "He didn't even want to get up in the morning, let alone get dirty or sweat or suffer under any circumstances. " Dickinson got lots of tough love at home. But his parents were so concerned that they prayed he would find a direction in life.

You ran a couple of stories about (former Air Force) Lt. John Dickinson, the Amnesty International prisoner of conscience who spent the past year locked up for his refusal to participate in the slaughter of Iraq. I would like to add a couple tidbits of information that I find very confusing. John Dickinson is a gentle, caring man of peace, a teacher who loves his students and was willing to give up his livelihood, his family and his freedom to be true to his belief in peace and his abhorrence of war. But the military was (angry)

As popular as "1776" has been, the show still seems an odd subject for a musical, based as it is on 13 colonial delegations to the Continental Congress fighting over whether to revolt against King George III.
