For much of the 20th century, Carl Sandburg was, if not the Voice of America, one of its significant and honored voices. How does what he said, wrote, and represented hold up in the 21st century? Where is he wise; where is he naïve; what does he say that is timeless and universal, and what has faded in the direction of marginal relevance? Is Sandburg’s standing in literary and cultural consciousness an example of Cultural Amnesia? To appreciate, and differentiate between, what is enduring and what is dated in Sandburg’s writing, we will interactively read his marathon poem “The People, Yes.” Is it still The People Yes, or has it become The People, Yes, No, and Maybe? Please bring to class The Complete Poems of Carl Sandburg, published by Harcourt, Inc., or any edition of “The People, Yes.”

CLASS DESCRIPTION

“Why Isn’t That Politician in Prison?” In 2016, the United States Supreme Court made it much more difficult to convict a public officer of bribery. Bob McDonnell, the former governor of Virginia, did many things that a federal jury believed qualified as bribery-related crimes, yet the Supreme Court disagreed and reversed his conviction. While one could agree that it was a distasteful decision, the court said it was necessary when federal corruption laws collided with the constitutional rights of constituents. These include the right to contribute to a public officer and to call upon that officer, once elected, to perform job-related services on behalf of a constituent—services like arranging meetings with other government officers, writing recommendations for school admission, and providing assistance with navigating government-agency red tape. In this class, we’ll take a look at a few of the bribery-related federal offenses most frequently used to charge public officials with corruption, and how the courts have construed cases involving such prosecutions after the McDonnell decision. We’ll also look at some local laws to see if they effectively fill the gap in punishing public officials for errant deeds. No experience in politics or prison necessary. Come and have fun. Discussion encouraged!

CLASS DESCRIPTION

“Why Isn’t That Politician in Prison?” In 2016, the United States Supreme Court made it much more difficult to convict a public officer of bribery. Bob McDonnell, the former governor of Virginia, did many things that a federal jury believed qualified as bribery-related crimes, yet the Supreme Court disagreed and reversed his conviction. While one could agree that it was a distasteful decision, the court said it was necessary when federal corruption laws collided with the constitutional rights of constituents. These include the right to contribute to a public officer and to call upon that officer, once elected, to perform job-related services on behalf of a constituent—services like arranging meetings with other government officers, writing recommendations for school admission, and providing assistance with navigating government-agency red tape. In this class, we’ll take a look at a few of the bribery-related federal offenses most frequently used to charge public officials with corruption, and how the courts have construed cases involving such prosecutions after the McDonnell decision. We’ll also look at some local laws to see if they effectively fill the gap in punishing public officials for errant deeds. No experience in politics or prison necessary. Come and have fun. Discussion encouraged!

By the mid-1950s, most parents expressed satisfaction with their lives. They taught their children “middle class values.” But by the mid-1960s, many young Americans began to question those values. “Question Authority” became a rallying cry for a disenchanted generation. Political assassinations, an ever-deepening war, the battle for civil rights – all of these were factors in a seismic change to our country, the likes of which has not been seen since. The effect on politics, social issues, music, fashion, and pop culture are still felt today. This class will focus on the Politics, Social Change, Music, Fashion, and Science of the decade that forever changed our country.

In this course we will explore some of these views that eventually died out after being judged “heterodox” by the Catholic Church which became dominant in the early part of the 4th century. We will examine their origins, and their scriptures which were excluded from the canon of the New Testament.

For much of the 20th Century, Carl Sandburg, if not The Voice of America, was one of the significant and honored voices. How does what he wrote hold up in the 21st Century? Where is he wise; where is he naïve; what does he say which is timeless and universal, and what has faded in the direction of marginal relevance? Is Sandburg’s standing in literary and cultural consciousness an example of Cultural Amnesia? To appreciate and differentiate between what is enduring and what is dated in Sandburg’s writing, we will interactively read his marathon poem, “The People, Yes.” Is it still The People Yes, or has it become The People, Yes, No, and Maybe? Bring to class The Complete Poems of Carl Sandburg, or any edition of “The People, Yes.”
