In case you missed them, there were two very different but equally powerful history lessons that were made available online in recent days:
#1 – The first came from a professor of history, Duke University’s William Chafe, whose op-ed in Raleigh’s News & Observer  provided a refresher course on the close link between the rise and fall of the middle class and our ebbing and flowing societal commitment to public investments.
#2 – The second came from author Larkin Warren whose piece for the New York Times (“I Was a Welfare Mother” ) provides a powerful refutation of those who seek to “divide and conquer” or simply ignore the Americans who find themselves, at times, “dependent” on public assistance.
