HAPPYBIRTHDAYLINDA Pooh knows it may not be Wednesday. He is just clowning around like someone else we know. LOL.. Pooh wants you to know “From there to here, from here to there, researchers find that Dr. Seuss is — in political, social, psychological and even business terms — everywhere.” General Lee finds this interesting; “Writing in the Political Research Quarterly in 1983, Timothy Cook contends that many of Dr. Seuss’ stories, like those of Wizard of Oz creator L. Frank Baum, “present a distinctly negative aspect of government and authority.” In such tales as Yertle the Turtle and The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, “Seuss shows political authority as potentially selfish and exploitative, thirsting for more power, heedless of the best interests of the community,” Cook asserts. “Both Baum and Seuss, by the conclusions of their stories, appear to argue that government should be limited in its scope.” READ THE WHOLE STORY CLICK
