That’s the book that I’ll be giving away this afternoon (Monday) at 4:30 on my Puffman Musical Trivia! “Scorched Earth; Legacies of Chemical Warfare in Vietnam” with the foreword by Noam Chomsky comes upon the 50 year anniversary of the 1st spraying of defoliants in Vietnam. In “Scorched Earth”, author & Vietnam scholar Fred A, Wilcox (with photographs by Brendan Wilcox), tells BOTH sides of the Agent Orange story & it’s not a pretty picture! Noam Chomsky, who penned the foreword on this tome, says, “To our everlasting shame, current controversy over the Vietnam war focuses on the question “Could we have won?” The real question should be “What have we done?” Focusing on 1 shattering clarity, relying on personal testimony, visual imagery, & cold fact. No decent person can fail to be appalled, or to be inspired to do what we can to help the victims: the suffering people & ravaged land.” Ted Koppel says that “The debate over Agent Orange & the damage that it did, is long over & resolved. There is no question of how it affected our veterans, & there is even less reason to doubt the dreadful impact that it has had on generations of Vietnamese.” Check out “Scorched Earth” at www.sevenstories.com &then, listen to WIN the book this afternoon at 4:30 on Puffman Musical Trivia. I’ve got a GREAT brain teaser this afternoon on the rock group, Boston”.
