Episode 30 - Message from Nam

DO NOT FUCK PAXTON ANDREWS.  Avoid accidentally making eye contact with Paxton Andrews.  If you absolutely must enter a room with Paxton Andrews take extreme precautions so you don't die horribly in the Vietnam War.  It's pretty good for her career as a journalist tho.
This one has no sexual assault but it does have a horrible pointless war, an awful murder-suicide, bombings, screaming, howling, and a mammy.  (YES A MAMMY.  Yeah I wasn't expecting that either.)
You got it, we're reading Message from Nam as our second 4 for 40 book for Sara!  I would like to apologize to the Academy...

So I actually did borrow this from my aunt's bookshelf when I was a young person (what, like 10 maybe?) and I expected it to be Well Intentioned Racism About Vietnam.  And don't get me wrong, it is that - but it's also Well Intentioned Racism With Regards to the Civil Rights Movement and urrrrrrgh y'all.  It's also.... I mean I hate to use the word "Mary Sue"…

Who are we?

We're two shit-disturbers from Columbia, South Carolina who love books and booze and talking over each other.  We met in a post-election fury and continue to agitate, take no shit, and drink heavily while reading the news.

Courtney is a Technical Librarian by way of a master’s degree in Public History. She has been obsessed with romance novels since she stole them off her Mamaw’s nightstand. She is a loud talker, likes the color pink, enjoys cheap wine, and thinks music festivals are dumb. She also is scared of bears, loves Dolly Parton and Reese Witherspoon, and is a Basic Southern bitch minus the racism and White Shoulders.

Sara is a Research and Readers' Advisory Librarian with a master's degree in Library and Information Science.  She once came in second on Jeopardy! but it was after Alex Trebek shaved off his mustache so she isn't sure if that counts. She is unafraid of bears as long as they are South Carolina bears; none of that west coast ursine shit.  She dresses like a lumberjack on vacation but owns more than one set of pearls and a lot of personalized stationery.
