Not to dampen the discussion of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, but we can entertain ideas for a new topic. I think we can open our discussion beyond books, to documentaries, news stories and movies that take in the American Experience. I see PBS makes quite a few of its programs available for viewing at its site. The HBO series, Treme, is also great fodder for discussion with the first season available soon on DVD, or we can explore its historic roots in Fauborg Treme. I can create a sidebar with links to posts for ongoing discussions if anyone would like to follow a particular subject over time without having to search through the posts to find the subject.
Also, please feel free to create your own posts on subjects that interest you. Everyone has the ability to create posts. If not, please forward me an e-mail address and I will invite you to be a contributor.
