Go Ask Alice

The 1970s was a time of change. A time of revolution. War was the topic of nearly all
conversations and sex and drugs were on everyone's minds. While boogie fever swept dance
floors, young men were sent off to die in a war that they could never win. Richard Nixon
was in office and his scandal was to influence politics for years to come. The bright blue
bell-bottom pants with the pink and orange flowers sewed on were the coolest thing…oh
excuse me, I mean the "grooviest" thing to have. Big cars were the big thing and inflation
was as "high" as the teenagers smoking pot and shooting heroin.

This was the 1970s. Alice of "Go Ask Alice" would have been greatly influenced by this era
of time. Although she had cleaned up her act, Alice most likely would have had trouble
resisting the temptation provided by her peers to smoke, make love, and have the time of
her life. Although one cannot say that for sure. Counseling also became much more readily
available to people afflicted with addictions. So, maybe Alice would have been okay.
There's no way to really tell. One can be certain though that with her steadfast and
determined way of thinking, she probably would have been protesting the Vietnam War from
the very start and the right of nuclear power plants to be in operative mode. She probably
would have thought President Nixon to be one of the biggest moron ever to live, and she
most likely would have been out on the streets. Not living the life of an addicted druggie
though, but rather counseling others on how to clean up their acts and get on with their
lives. I think Alice would have made a really good life for herself.

    AH VEssay submitted by Unknown Early Life Born in Monroeville, Alabama, on April 28, 1926, Nelle Harper Lee is the youngest of three children of Amassa Coleman Lee and Francis Lee. Before his death, Miss Lee\'s father and her older sister, Alice, practiced law together in Monroeville.

  • Eyes Wide Shut
    Eyes Wide Shut The "haunting" effects of Stanley Kubrick\'s Eyes Wide Shut can be identified as creating curiosity, fear and anxiety in the viewer. They can be understood as painting a mosaic of symbolism in the viewer\'s eye, and as depositing fragments of concepts inside his mind. The film\'s slow pace seems to open wide gaps between the joints of the story\'s framework, causing the viewer to lose his secure sense of balance during the progression of the plot. Eyes Wide Shut is not a tale of t
