This statistic was published by the Brooking’s Institute. Throughout the Brooking’s Institute article, they stress the importance of marriage and the effects on kids’ lives being born out of wedlock. Throughout Krugman’s book, he also references research done by the Brooking’s Institute, particularly, a study measuring the Bush tax cuts in which he explains ending the Bush tax cuts could result in enough revenue to fund universal health care, “The nonpartisan Urban-Brookings Joint Tax Center estimates that letting the Bush tax cuts expire for people with incomes over two hundred thousand dollars would be worth about $140 billion a year starting in 2012.

He felt responsible for Kiowa’s death. When he pondered about the tragic event, he recalls “the worst part, “was the smell” (139). Constantly, Norman graphic, vivid memories of how “Kiowa disappeared under the waste and water” (143), and how he felt being dragged down with him.
He says, “You talk about it a hell of a lot, but you won’t get no land.” Crooks has seen many people with that dream that never did it, and he didn’t get to see someone get the land they wanted anyway. These events lead to and foreshadow the farm dream being dead. The second event that Steinbeck uses foreshadowing is, curley’s wife being killed. George tells lennie to hide in the brush if he gets in trouble.
“He wanted people to keep their distance from where he lived”(67). He didn’t get to stay in the bunkhouse and wasn’t able to play cards. He plays horseshoes against the other people on the ranch and wins most of the time. He doesn’t like Curley’s wife/ she is always looking for her husband.

Steinbeck was trying to make Crooks appear completely different to George and Lennie’s characters.
John steinbeck touches base on the American Dream when he wrote Of Mice and Men. There are many ways that John Steinbeck demonstrates how both George and Lennie have an American Dream. “With us it ain’t like that. We got a future” is an example of how the boys have that dream of having better things to come for them(Steinbeck 15). Steinbeck also uses motifs to show that the American Dream is within the book.
Furthermore, George talks to Lennie about the land and their dreams in a cold voice before he shoots Lennie, showing the signs that he didn’t actually believe in what he was saying anymore. “George shook himself... his voice was monotonous and had no emphasis. ”(Steinbeck 103). George speaks in this tone which shows how he did not believe what he was saying to Lennie was true.

Founding Brothers In this book there are many interesting stories and lots to learn. Although the first chapter to really capture my interest would have to be Chapter 2, ‘The Dinner”. It discusses the dinner which Thomas Jefferson held to decide the issues of the early nation 's deficit and the location of its new capital. This event would later become known as the Compromise of 1790. During the summer of 1790, Hamilton said that his financial plan for the nation had reached a stalemate, because Southern politicians opposed the proposed assumption of state debt by the federal government.
I am Esteban Rogelio Reyes, and I’m in the ninth grade. About a few weeks ago you came and visited Rancho Mirage High School and gave us copies of your book, Autodidactic. That book really changed what I think about education, learning and taking responsibility into my own hands. After reading your book, I thought about who I am, my struggles and my accomplishments.
