Did Alex Haley Lie To Us? | Revue

In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.”   —   Alex Haley

(Some internet sites include the article “a” before the word “link”.  This line could be from one of Alex’s books, spoken by a character who either isn’t educated, or just isn’t big on articles.  But that puts me in mind of the 1976 comedy movie “Murder By Death”.  It was a whodunnit send up to fictional book/movie detectives.  Truman Capote’s character finally goes off on Peter Seller’s Sidney Wang character for ALWAYS omitting the article when he speaks.  With today’s political correctness the movie probably couldn’t be made, as it uses the stereotypes of these famous fictional detectives, but it is still very funny in my book.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
