Don't mind me; just yelling at clouds again.
I really never would have thought of it that way. Of course I didn't live in the 60's. I liked watching Timmy. It may be correct that Walter had an impact on the war regardless of when he made his statement about Vietnam. I just have a problem glorifying that statement because Tet was actually a tactical victory for the U.S. because of the media attention it was a strategic loss. After the Tet offensive in 1968 the Vietcong all but ceased to exist. I value the merit of this argument I just wonder if it's not waxing nostalgic like people do for the 50's. Leave it to Beaver and all but forget the fact that segregation was raging.
