Worsened by economy, report shows widest difference on record
<ehM^Wj?jÊiMehj^ Net worth includes the value of a person’s home, possessions and savings accumulated over the years, including stocks, bank accounts, real estate, cars, boats or other property, minus any debt such as mortgages, college loans and credit card bills. The median is the midpoint and thus refers to a typical household.
MWi^_d]jed The wealth gap between younger and older Americans has stretched to the widest on record, worsened by a prolonged economic downturn that has wiped out job opportunities for young adults and saddled them with housing and college debt. The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released Monday. While people typically accumulate assets as they age, this wealth gap is now more than double what it was in 2005 and nearly five times the 10-to-1 disparity a quarter-century ago, after adjusting for inflation. The analysis reflects the impact of the economic downturn, which has hit young adults particularly hard. More are pursuing college or advanced degrees, taking on debt as they wait for the job market to recover. Others are struggling to pay mortgage costs on homes now worth less than when they were bought in the housing boom. The report, coming out before the Nov. 23 deadline for a special congres-

“It makes us wonder whether the extraordinary amount of resources we spend on retirees and their health care should be at least partially reallocated to those who are hurting worse than them,” said Harry Holzer, a labor economist and public policy professor at Georgetown University who called the magnitude of the wealth gap “striking.” While the wealth gap has been widening gradually due to delayed marriage and increases in single parenting among young adults, the housing bust and recession have made it significantly worse.

Earthquake Rocks Okla. No injuries reported after magnitude-5.6 temblor hits state Clouds of dust belched from the corners of almost every room in Joe Reneau’s house as the biggest earthquake in Oklahoma history rocked the two-story building. A roar that sounded like a jumbo jet filled the air, and Reneau’s chimney collapsed and fell into the roof above the living room. By the time the shaking stopped, a pantry’s worth of food had been strewn across the kitchen, and shards of glass and pottery covered the floor. “It was like WHAM!” said Reneau, 75. “I thought in my mind the house would stand, but then again, maybe not.” The magnitude-5.6 earthquake and its aftershocks still had residents rattled Sunday. No injuries were reported, and aside from a buckled highway and the collapse of a tower on the St. Gregory’s University administration building, neither was any major damage. But the weekend earthquakes were among the strongest yet in a state that

Greek PM’s Resignation Looms Interim coalition will help facilitate Europe’s debt plan
7j^[di"=h[[Y[ Greece’s embattled prime minister and main opposition leader agreed Sunday to form an interim government to ensure the country’s new European debt deal and oversee early elections, capping a week of political turmoil that saw Greece facing a catastrophic default and threatening its euro membership. Greek leaders had been anxious to end a severe political crisis with some positive result before Monday, when the country heads to a meeting of eurozone finance ministers in Brussels. Prime Minister George Papandreou “has already stated he will not lead the new government,” President Karolos Papoulias’ office said in a statement. “We know that there can be no elections now,” Papandreou had said during an earlier emergency Cabinet meeting. “This cooperation, however, is necessary and will be beneficial for the climate in our country and internationally.” Papandreou is to meet again Monday with opposition leader

The new European deal, agreed on by the 27-nation bloc on Oct. 27 after marathon negotiations, would give Greece an additional $179 billion in rescue loans and bank support. It would also see banks write off 50 percent of Greek debt, worth some $138 billion. Greece’s lawmakers must now approve the new rescue deal, putting intense pressure on the country’s leaders to swiftly end the political crisis so parliament can put the debt agreement to a vote.

Fears Over Tehran Unite Israel, Gulf States

Talk of war grows in speculation about Iran’s nuclear goals

per in comments published Sunday that “the possibility of a military strike on Iran is more likely to be realized than the diplomatic option.” The U.S. and others hope the report’s findings will be referred to the U.N. Security Council for tougher sanctions on Iran or a deadline for greater nuclear cooperation. But any scenario will likely shed greater light on common ground between Israel and the Gulf states over how to further isolate Iran. “The question is whether any Gulf state would go to the extreme of supporting an Israeli attack on Iran,” said analyst Ehsan Ahrari.
ÇM[b_l[_dWjek]^ d[_]^Xeh^eeZ$Dec[hYo \ehj^[m[Wa$È — ISR A ELI DEFENSE MINISTER EHUD BA R A K , SPEAKING IN
A BBC INTERVIEW AIRED SUNDAY ABOUT THE GULF REGION AND WARNING THAT IRAN COULD OPEN A “MAJOR NUCLEAR ARMS RACE.”
Among the many alliances of convenience in the Middle East, one is so unusual that the partners barely hint about it publicly: Israel and the Gulf Arab states are linked by fears over Iran’s nuclear program. While their deeper disputes on the Palestinians effectively block strategic breakthroughs, the recent warnings from Israel and the West about military options against Iran
invariably draw in the Gulf. The Gulf states are indispensable to confront Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. Israel, which has no direct diplomatic outreach to the Gulf, is likely brought in with the U.S. as a go-between, experts say. The next moves are expected after the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency releases a report Tuesday.
Leaks suggest the document will reinforce suspicions that Iran is working toward atomic weapons. For now, the speculation of an increased threat of military strikes is based on comments by Israel and the West ahead of the International Atomic Energy Agency report. Israeli President Shimon Peres told the Yisrael Hayom newspa-

Terror Threats in Nigeria Draw Warning From U.S. BW]ei"D_][h_W After a weekend of violence and fear, U.S. officials warned Sunday that luxury hotels in Abuja frequented by foreigners and Nigeria’s elite may be bombed by a radical Muslim sect as the death toll from attacks in the country’s northeast rises to more than 100. The warning by the U.S. Embassy shows how seriously diplomats take the threat posed by the outlawed Islamist group known locally as Boko Haram. The unusually specific warning identified possible targets as the Hilton, Nicon Luxury and Sheraton hotels.

Rebuilding the Capital Crescent Trail through a tunnel in downtown Bethesda as part of a Purple Line transitway would require funneling runners and cyclists through an 8-foot-tall clear tube built above light-rail trains, state engineers told local planners last week. Engineers for the Maryland Transit Administration, who toured the tunnel, said they would have to elevate a new 12-foot-wide trail 10 feet above its current location and enclose it in glass or another clear material to let in sunlight while protecting trail users from the light-rail trains’ overhead power lines. The tube would run above the trains — which the state’s Purple Line project manager said is doable, although he hasn’t seen it done anywhere else. When asked how enjoyable the enclosure would be for users of an outdoor trail, Michael Madden, the state’s Purple Line study manager, said, “That’s a valid point, and what we’re bringing to the county’s attention. There are all kinds of costs and risks associated with getting it through the tunnel.” How to squeeze the trail, two train tracks and station platforms through a tunnel that now carries only the trail beneath Wisconsin Avenue and two office buildings would be the most difficult part of building a 16-mile Purple Line between Bethesda and New Carrollton, Madden said.
Montgomery County planners and DOT officials enter the tunnel beneath Wisconsin Avenue to tour one of the sites of the proposed Purple Line transit system on Nov. 3.
ÇJ^[h[Wh[Wbb a_dZie\YeijiWdZ h_iaiWiieY_Wj[Z m_j^][jj_d]Qj^[ b_d[Sj^hek]^ j^[jkdd[b$È — MICHAEL MADDEN, MARYLAND’S PURPLE LINE STUDY MANAGER.
State transit planners conducted a tour of the tunnel near the Bethesda Row shopping and entertainment district for Montgomery County planning board members, who will consider the trail’s design Nov. 17. About 50 people accompanied the members, including state engineers, local transportation planners and activists holding up green “save the trail” signs.
Ajay Bhatt, president of the nonprofit group Friends of the Capital Crescent Trail, said that local officials need to keep long-held promises that the trail will remain in the tunnel to keep cyclists and runners from having to cross busy Wisconsin Avenue. “I can’t imagine people would enjoy that trail experience,” Bhatt said of an enclosed trail above trains, and “it seems like it will be a safety hazard” by attracting crime. Beyond the Bethesda tunnel, most of the trail would run adjacent to, and about three feet above, the light-rail tracks, state engineers said. Trees would be planted to provide a buffer between trains and trail users. K ATHERINE SHAV ER (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Views Differ on Occupy Incident Police say protesters jumped in front of car before accident
Six people from the Occupy D.C. movement were arrested or ticketed in the chaotic moments after a driver struck protesters in front of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Friday night, police said. By Saturday, police and protesters were still giving divergent accounts of what occurred when more than 500 people gathered to protest a dinner held by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative freemarket group affiliated with the tea party movement. Video clips showed tense shouting and shoving at the doors, which left two older women dazed on the ground. Protesters chanted, beat drums and massed near Seventh and K streets NW, attempting to shut down the intersection and block moving cars, police said. They said that around 10 p.m., one driver tried to navigate a gap in the crowd, but
Police said that the pedestrians who were hit were cited for walking against a do-not-walk sign and that later three were arrested for failure to obey an officer. Police said the three who were struck were not seriously injured. In the more-than a month since Occupy D.C. took over McPherson Square, it has grown from a handful of protesters to a full-blown tent city. They do not have a permit to occupy the square, but so far they have been allowed to stay. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Emergency workers tend to a woman who was hurt in the Occupy incident Friday in D.C.
three pedestrians moved in front of the vehicle and were hit. “They jumped in front of the car,” said Officer Araz Alali, a spokesman for the department. Members of the Occupy D.C. media team disputed that the protesters jumped in front of the car and claimed that the driver deliberately sped up before hitting the protesters. They said tensions escalated when police let the driver of the car — who was not cited — proceed. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Like something out of the Old Testament, an affliction from on high has rained down on Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Fairfax County: golf balls. In all, 2,637 balls pelted the property during a recent year-long period, the church claims. Members know because they collected each one. The source is not divine, but the adjacent TopGolf, a state-of-the-art entertainment complex that features a 76-bay, two-level driving range. When a duffer hits a slice just right, balls can zing about 350 yards over protective netting, located off of South Van Dorn Street, and fly right onto the grounds of Faith Evangelical. The church is so teed off that members have invoked an obscure bit of Virginia law to seek relief. They petitioned a Fairfax court for a special grand jury to decide whether TopGolf could be prosecuted as an ongoing public nuisance. The maneuver set legal gears turning that could result in a
January jury trial and possibly a $25,000 fine for TopGolf. “They want one thing: to stop the barrage of golf balls,” said Faith Evangelical’s attorney, Benjamin T. Riddles II. “The church lives in fear of a fatal injury.”

According to TopGolf chief executive Joe Vrankin, “99.9927 percent of balls stay in the property line.” How does he know? TopGolf outfits each ball with a microchip that allows the company to track the length of the drive and the number of balls hit. “Not only, without question, is it the safest golf center in the county, the reality is that they just don’t want us there,” Vrankin said of those at the church.

Ced[o Debt Up Again for ’10 College Class F[hiedWb<_dWdY[
YVONNE HEMSEY/GETTY IMAGES
Before committing to layaway, make sure you can keep up with the payments. If you skip one, many stores cancel the layaway, and you could get charged a cancellation fee.
Members of the college class of 2010 who took out student loans owed on average $25,250 upon graduation, a 5 percent increase from the year before, according to a new analysis released Thursday. The figures, compiled using college survey data by the Project on Student Debt, indicate average indebtedness increasing at about the same annual rate as in the last five years, but still give a fresh
snapshot of what many advocates and experts call an alarming reliance on borrowed money to pay for college. Roughly two-thirds of the class of 2010 borrowed for college, and they were hit especially hard because the unemployment rate for new college graduates stood at 9.1 percent the year they graduated — though that’s less than half the rate for counterparts who have only a high school degree.

Be Leery of Layaway The cost of paying a store to hold an item may be surprising F[hiedWb<_dWdY[ Should savvy shoppers cheer the widespread return of layaway programs for the holidays? Retailers are running advertising blitzes touting their layaway programs as the holiday shopping season kicks off. But paying a store to set aside merchandise while you slowly pay the balance may not be the best financial decision. “What you don’t want to do is commit to layaway and then start making purchases with your heart, not your head, and start charging those,” said Gail Cunningham, spokeswoman for the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. Do that and you’ll have to pay off the layaway and face charge-card expenses after the holidays. Here are some of the issues to consider before signing up.
<[[i There’s no such thing as a free layaway. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., for exam-
Higher prices If you sign up for an eight-week layaway plan this weekend, you’ll pay whatever price the store is charging right now. That could mean you’ll miss out on lower prices as the holidays near. It’s important to understand whether items on layaway will qualify for future sale reductions. For the most part, stores will not reduce prices once the layaway has started, but ask anyway. (AP)
ple, charges a $5 fee to enter its program and requires a down payment of 10 percent of the purchase price. Sears and Kmart charge $5 for an eight-week payment plan and $10 for a 12-week plan; plus a down payment of $20 or 20 percent, whichever is greater. The fees may not sound high, but because of the short duration of layaway programs, they can exceed the interest charges on a credit card. If you pay a $5 layaway fee and a $10 down payment on a $100 item held for eight weeks, for example, that’s the equivalent of 44
percent APR on a card. “It’s not really any different, at the end of the day, from using a credit card,” said Jacob Gibson, chief operating officer at Nerdwallet.com, a credit card comparison site. “Instead of paying interest, you’re going to pay fees.”
9WdY[bbWj_ed Before committing to a layaway, make sure you can keep up with the payments. If you skip a payment, many stores will cancel the layaway, and return the item to the shelf. They’ll return your balance, typically minus a $10 to $15 cancellation fee. But policies vary, so it’s important to make sure you know the policies before you commit.

Fourth-and-Long for the Redskins Losing streak grows as offense continues to show no firepower
H[YehZF[h\ehcWdY[ An indication of the Redskins’ struggles on Sunday against the 49ers: Their leading receiver was rookie running back Roy Helu, who caught a franchiserecord 14 passes for 105 yards coming out of the backfield. His longest reception was 17 yards. Helu’s mark broke a record previously held by Hall of Fame receiver Art Monk, who had 13 catches for 230 yards when the Redskins defeated the Bengals on Dec. 15, 1985. (E XPRESS/AP)
Capitalize when the other team messes up. Hit the occasional big play. Give the ball to Frank Gore a lot. There’s nothing fancy about the way the San Francisco 49ers are running away with the NFC West, and it was more of the same Sunday when they won their sixth-straight game by putting away the offensively inept Redskins 19-11. Gore had 107 yards on 19 carries for his fifth-straight 100-yard game, and Alex Smith connected with rookie fullback Bruce Miller for the seventh-round draft pick’s first career touchdown. David Akers kicked four field goals, and the defense forced three turnovers. The Redskins have lost four straight and their only points before the final two minutes came on Graham Gano’s franchise-record 59-yard field goal on the last play of the first half. First-year coach Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers (7-1) have their longest winning streak since 1997 and are 4-0 on the road for the first time since 1992 — with all four coming on those 1 p.m. Eastern time zone kickoffs that are supposed to drag down West Coast teams. The 49ers already had the stingiest scoring defense in the NFL
Redskins tight end Fred Davis drops a pass on a fourth-and-two on Sunday against the 49ers. San Francisco won, 19-11.
BEST CALL: With time winding down
in the first half, Mike Shanahan called for Graham Gano to kick a 59-yard field goal. It seemed like a reach, but Gano drilled it. WORST CALL: At the beginning of the fourth, Shanahan elected to go for it from the 49ers’ 33, passing on potential field goal points. They didn’t convert on a pass to Fred Davis. WORST ADJUSTMENT: Jonn Beck rarely threw the ball more than 10 yards on any attempt, and the offense moved at a glacial pace.
This team’s lack of scoring has made it almost completely unwatchable.

— a league-low 107 points coming into the game. And it wasn’t especially taxing to retain that reputation against the injury-riddled and talentchallenged Redskins (3-5), whose 23-0 embarrassment against Buffalo last week was the first shutout in Mike Shanahan’s career as either a head coach or offensive coordinator. Shanahan tried to shake things up by giving debut starts to three rookies — running back Roy Helu, receiver Leonard Hankerson and left guard Maurice Hurt — but the offense continued to explore new depths of futility. John Beck again had trouble finding open receivers, completing 30 of 47 passes for 254 yards with one touchdown and one interception. And the Redskins were on the verge of going eight quarters without scoring a touchdown until Beck found Jabar Gaffney with 1:10 remaining. “Right now, you take a look at the offense, it’s tough to take,” Shanahan said after the game. “Tough to take for me.” JOSEPH WHITE (AP)

NBA Sets Deadline to Accept Proposal Stern says deal will only get worse if the lockout continues Fhe8Wia[jXWbb Commissioner David Stern gave NBA players an offer and a deadline: Accept a chance to earn up to 51 percent of basketball-related income by Wednesday or get ready for a deal that’s a whole lot worse.
He wouldn’t call it an ultimatum, but it didn’t sure sit well with the union. “The players will not be intimidated,” attorney Jeffrey Kessler said early Sunday after eight hours of negotiations stretched late into the night. “They want to play, they want a season, but they are not going to sacrifice the future of all NBA players under these types of threats of intimidation. It’s not happening on Derek Fish-
er’s watch; it’s not happening on Billy Hunter’s watch; it’s not happening on the watch of this executive committee.” Kessler said the proposal was really 50.2 percent for the players and called the chance of their ever reaching 51 percent a “fraud” and an “illusion.” But if players don’t agree to it by Wednesday, Stern said they would get a deal that would guarantee them just 47 percent of BRI and
call for a flex salary cap. “We hope that this juxtaposition will cause the union to assess its position and accept the deal,” Stern said. Thus ended another frustrating day, one that puts a lengthy 201112 season in doubt. “Today was another sad day for our fans, for arena workers, our parking lot attendants, our vendors. Very frustrating, sad day,” union president Fisher added. (AP)

— ME X ICA N SINGER-SONGW RITER JULIE TA V ENEGA S,
Grammy-winning Mexican singersongwriter Julieta Venegas could easily have the universal name recognition of an Enrique Iglesias or a Shakira. But who needs it? The 40-year-old singer is already a mega-star throughout Latin America, and she tours all over the world. She hasn’t put out an English-language crossover album, but her music — an accessible hybrid of traditional Mexican ranchera and more modern electronic and mainstream elements — is instantly recognizable, regardless of language. Besides, translating her songs into English is something she has simply never wanted to do. “My music is very personal, and my way of working is also very personal,” Venegas says from a hotel room in Los Angeles, one stop on the second tour for her 2010 album, “Otra Cosa.” Venegas, who boasts five studio albums and one “MTV Unplugged” album, is a different sort of artist. While many of her songs will entice you to get up and dance, there is also an intimacy to her work that comes through even for those whose Spanish doesn’t go much beyond “hola.”

Prefer reading to drinking? You can do both. Tonight, ChurchKey (1337 14th St. NW) hosts author Joshua Bernstein for a beer tasting and signing of his new book about craft brewing, “Brewed Awakening.”
That intimacy, at least on “Otra Cosa,” largely comes from the fact that Venegas wrote, arranged and recorded almost everything by herself, from the comfort of her home in Mexico City. “I like doing nothing but writing,” she says. “I barely leave my house. I really love that process.” Venegas may be something of a lone wolf when it comes to writing and recording, but her live shows bring all hands on deck. Venegas, though primarily a pianist, also plays accordion and guitar, and she expects the same versatility of her bandmates. Her current band may have only seven members, but each plays multiple instruments. “I’ve always wanted that kind of band, people who just kind of dare to play around,” she says. After nearly a year of touring and the birth of her daughter, Venegas says she is ready to get back into the rhythm of writing. She hopes to try something entirely new and different, but she still has both feet firmly planted on the ground. “I think change is always good,” she says. “When I put out my first album, I didn’t know who I was; I didn’t know what I really wanted to do or what kind of career I wanted. Now I’m pretty clear about it.” JESS

November is National Novel Writing Month, and while we can’t help you become a great author (and it’s unclear that NaNoWriMo can do so either, though this column is too short to go into that), we can tell you that most writers worth their ink were sauced approximately 75 percent of the time. The other 25 percent they were asleep. Is your novel a ten8o<_edW der examination of the PkXb_d problems of the 1 percent? Channel F. Scott Fitzgerald. He was partial to the gin rickey — though doesn’t thinking about F. Scott Fitzgerald make you not want to drink at all? That did not end well. Every year, the DC Craft Bartenders Guild holds a rickey competition (it’s D.C.’s official cocktail). This year’s winner was Gina Chersevani of PS 7’s (777 I St. NW). Her winning cocktail was pretty unorthodox, so, as a novelist on a path to destruction, you may be better off ordering a classic rickey. If satire is your aim, go with Dorothy Parker’s poison of choice: whiskey sours. Our favorite is at the Gibson (2009 14th St. NW). But the beauty of the whiskey sour is that nearly every bartender knows how to make it. Talk up your fellow barflies to help populate your novel with interesting characters.

>Wff_bo9hWdao TV curmudgeon Andy Rooney loved his job and loved life — absurdities and all
>[_hije8_[X[h I[jje>_j?j8_] Cki_Y
Andy Rooney so dreaded the day he would have to end his signature “60 Minutes” commentaries about life’s large and small absurdities that he kept going until he was 92 years old. Even then, he said he wasn’t retiring. Writers never retire. But his life after the end of “A Few Minutes With Andy Rooney” was short: He died Friday night, according to CBS, only a month after delivering his 1,097th and final televised commentary. Rooney had gone to the hospital for an undisclosed surgery, but major complications developed and he never recovered. “Andy always said he wanted to work until the day he died, and he managed to do it, save the last few weeks in the hospital,” said “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft. Rooney talked on “60 Minutes” about what was in the news, but he was just as likely to discuss the old clothes in his closet, why air travel had become unpleasant and banks’

For more than 30 years, Andy Rooney (seen in 1978) let rants fly on “60 Minutes.”

It turns out there was no Mrs. Smith. “I obviously have a knack for getting on paper what a lot of people have thought and didn’t realize they thought,” Rooney once said. “And they say, ‘Hey, yeah!’ And
they like that.” Looking for something new to punctuate its weekly broadcast, “60 Minutes” aired its first Rooney commentary on July 2, 1978. Jeff Fager, CBS News chairman and “60 Minutes” executive producer, said, “It’s hard to imagine not having Andy around. He loved his life and he lived it on his own terms. We will miss him very much.” For his final essay, Rooney said that he’d live a life luckier than most. “I wish I could do this forever. I can’t, though,” he said. DAVID BAUDER (AP)
CODY SIMPSON Cody Simpson, 14, was already a star on the rise, but the addition of Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, makes his ascension seem guaranteed. The Australian’s latest EP, “Coast to Coast” — which debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard charts — features up-tempo pop and R&Bflavored ballads. MINDLESS BEHAVIOR (Prodigy, Princeton, Ray Ray, Roc Royal) This boy band was influenced by the Jackson 5, New Edition and B2K. “Most of our songs talk about girls, and everyone can relate to our songs,” band member Roc Royal said.

DIONNE BROMFIELD Fifteen-year-old Dionne Bromfield’s 2009 debut, “Introducing Dionne Bromfield,” was full of Motown covers such as “Mama Said” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Bromfield says she’s mainly inspired by Aretha Franklin. And by her godmother — the late Amy Winehouse. “Amy’s voice was Amy’s voice, and only Amy can sing how Amy did sing,” Bromfield said. “But, you know, I was trained up by her, so I do, like, take a lot of characteristics that she had.” MESFIN FEK ADU (AP)

RESEARCH STUDY Researchers are seeking participants for one-onone interviews about experiences with medication for depression or chronic pain. • Are you 18 years of age or older? • Have you started a new prescription medication for treatment of chronic pain or depression in the past month? If so, you may be eligible to participate in this interview study. Participants will receive compensation for their time.
>_ijeho Just in time for Veterans /0&& Day, “Vietnam in HD” offers a six-hour history of the war. Culled from home movies and unseen hours of color film, the footage has been upgraded to high definition and is narrated by a cast of notable actors voicing the words and memories of men and women who were there. We see Barry Romo as a young soldier in vintage footage. Then we see him as he is now. His recollections are presented in his own voice, which then gives way to a voice-over from “Entourage” actor Adrian Grenier. It’s an effective technique, repeated for more than a dozen participants. The restored footage and storytelling technique liberate the era from some of the cinematic cli-

ches that have defined it over the decades. It’s also a counter-narrative to the hackneyed view of the 1960s as one long love-in. We’re reminded here that, at least in the beginning, the war was seen as a necessary burden and was popular, even among those facing the draft. Lost in many pop histories of the decade is that the No. 1 single for the year 1966 was “The Ballad of the Green Beret” by Sgt.
Barry Sadler. All the same, it’s impossible to enter this six-hour experience and not feel as if you’ve returned to a slow-motion nightmare. It’s hard to even hear phrases like “search and destroy,” “body count,” “Rolling Thunder,” “strategic hamlet,” “Vietnamization” and “Peace With Honor” without feeling a little queasy all over again.
