Rambling observations on books, history, movies, transit, obsolete technology, baseball, and anything else that crosses my mind.

DW Griffith's America -- May 19, 2012
I went to the Hyatt Garden Hotel in Foster City to speak to the Daughters of the American Revolution. After lunch, I talked about DW Griffith, his movie America and the poor performance of movies about the Revolution. I had fun. Some of them had opinions about why they don't make many movies about the Revolution and why many of them do poorly at the box office.
