Land of Emmett Till
While I was living in the Mississippi Delta, Emmett Till’s body was exhumed and examined by the Cook County medical examiner’s office as part of a halted attempt to investigate and finally close this famous civil rights cold case. Can you guess the names and faces in this video? Look for Fannie Lou Hamer, Amzie Moore, Aaron Henry, Megar Evers, Dr. T.R.M. Howard -- who all tried to learn what had happened to the Chicago schoolboy who was murdered in the Mississippi Delta in August of 1955.

    This is a great book. The author shares his personal experience, and it is a rags to riches story about coming to grips with retirement. Anyone can read this book and come up with multiple ideas that work. We chose to move to a new geography where we can live at half the cost of where we were living. This made up for our loss in the market of our retirement savings. I also e-publish, and this gives ongoing income. Ken Bodnar is a type A racer, and many of us will never match his pace. Nevertheless, there is something here for every reader, thus I give his book 5 stars.
