In this fascinating collection, Al Norman shares¬†19 stories about the Ravings of wild Americans, from the 1700s until today–all based on real events: a man runs for President from a federal jail cell;¬† a Rock ‚ÄėN Roll legend asks the government for a narcotics agent badge; Naval officials prepare an elaborate plan to herd Japanese Americans into work camps; a federal lawmaker is blackmailed over alleged visits to a homosexual nightclub; a President threatens to draft union members into the Army if they go on strike; a gay psychiatrist is forced to disguise himself as Richard Nixon. Ravings is a quirky journey down dark paths of American history, with glimpses of political controversies still in today’s news, from immigration to assault weapons.
