Comments on: His Father’s Son — Chapter 7 http://www.keepapitchinin.org/2011/06/20/his-fathers-son-chapter-7/ Where our past is never very long ago Fri, 03 Jul 2015 16:51:50 +0000 hourly 1 By: Mark B. http://www.keepapitchinin.org/2011/06/20/his-fathers-son-chapter-7/comment-page-1/#comment-73505 Wed, 22 Jun 2011 14:17:39 +0000 http://www.keepapitchinin.org/?p=10561#comment-73505 Oh, by the way, someone should have told Ms. Stone that changing a tire does not require lying under the vehicle. Changing the oil might require that–but, getting under a vehicle while it’s jacked up for a tire change is a great way to end up as LAT suggests: smashed dead.

Kareen is ruled by her mysterious musical ancestor in the trunk (and neither Duena nor the Haven can change that). The Havens, well, as stuck in their ways–even Richard III, who (like a leopard) can’t change his spots). Esther (no relation genetically to anyone else) is the only one with sense.

The genetic theme is further amplified by the constant references to purebred animals, thoroughbred horses, and Luther Burbank, the leading geneticist at the time.

I can’t wait for Eugenics to rear it’s ugly head…

I think Rosalind Russell would be perfect as Kareen.

This story makes more sense (which doesn’t have to be much considering where it starts) in the context of the times laid out in that book.

Stay tuned! Prepare to be amazed!

I suspect that the violin in the trunk being held for Richard III is a stolen Stradivarius! I detect a draft board in his future, as well. Have we jumped the shark yet?
