Died too young
24 June 2008 | by dale-reedSee all my reviews

The film has some interesting comments by people who knew Dean towards the end of his life. Could of used some input from those who knew him when he was younger. I contributed some e-mail comments but refused to appear in person because I could not determine what the underlying views of the producer and director was. I did not want to contribute to a hack job on my younger brother.

I think it was Churchill who said that people who are not liberal when they are young have no heart but those who are not conservative when they are old have no brain.

Dean was just beginning to learn how the real world works before he died. I am confident if he had lived as long as I have he would have realized the terrible results of collectivism. Dale
