The best thing about getting kids to work is that the mine shafts can be made smaller and that means less cost to the mining industry...Mr. Gingrich forgot to mention that positive thing...

@AJ: Thanks for the response. Sorry for the late reply. I've been suffering IAB fatigue lately. Hope you and and your family have a good Thanksgiving.
Re: the *Dreams from My Father* quote, I think what`s being revealed is a person who has a fierce desire to be liked and accepted. That personality trait, coupled with his being half-black, made him particularly vulnerable to the charge of being a "sell-out"--mainly, because the charge was true. To deflect that charge, he briefly hung out with the "cool" anti-establishment stock characters on the college campus. It was a calculated, political move for expediency--and not all that different from what he did with progressives and liberals years later with his "Hope" and "Change" campaign.
