I should say, that what I find most interesting is where we came from and how music, art, drugs, pop culture, politics, violence....how it is all so intertwined.

The episode that talks about heroine, vietnam, and the CIA was really fascinating. My sons grandfather was killed in Viet Nam in 1964, very early in the war. I have letters he wrote to his wife and children, he was 28 yrs old and left behind 4 children. He went in as a volunteer with full conviction, but you can see a change in thought and believe as letters go on. I wonder what he would feel about things today?
