Dead Serious and Lighthearted – The Memorable Words of Modern America – Volume III (1994-2015) (618 pp)

by Mack W. Borgen, (January 2019)
Schmitt & Brody Publishers, Santa Barbara, CA

In Volume III, the last of the three-volume Dead Serious and Lighthearted series, the Memorable Words of Modern America from 1994 until 2015 are presented — with each entry again placed into context and explained as to meaning. As with the prior two volumes, the memorable words include the fascinating and frivolous, the tragic and momentous, the eloquent and bumbling.

From Forrest Gump to 12 Years a Slave; from 9/11 to the Great Recession; from “don’t ask, don’t tell” to “hands up! don’t shoot; from “mission accomplished” to “hope is not a strategy;” from the “Contract with America” to “drill, baby, drill;” from the impact of “shock and awe” to the reminder that “politics ain’t beanbag” and the rise of Trump(ism).
