A Plano Moment: Marcuse at Little League

Over coffee one day I lamented to a friend about a young man I knew who could not see past his Corvette and Ducati.  My friend told me I should read "One-Dimensional Man" by Herbert Marcuse.  The book was right on the money.  It was published in 1964 and 40 years later it was still true.

I was reading the book at Little League practice and one kid's grand-dad told me it was a good book.  I like that.  I can take a book by Herbert Marcuse to a Little League practice in Plano and the book is recognized.  I love Plano!
