Dr. Seuss a Progressive? A look at the incredible 'Cat in the Hat' author

Did you read Dr. Suess when you were young?  I did. Summers were filled with the joy of reading. Some of my best days were spent with the "Cat in the Hat" as well as "Fun with Dick and Jane" or the summer "Weekly Reader."

I don't usually get political on this website, I usually save the political for my blog: Foreclosures, Evictions and You)  But this piece grabbed my attention and there is so much great information that can inspire us as writers! The background to the Dr. Suess books and the short succinct biography is incredible.

Radical Reading: The Progressive Dr. Seuss: ""Generations of progressive activists may not trace their political views to their early exposure to Dr. Seuss, but without doubt this shy, brilliant genius played a role in sensitizing them to abuses of power."
On Friday, March 1, tens of millions of children and their parents will be reading Dr. Seuss books as part of Read Across America Day, sponsored by the National Educational Association (NEA) in partnership with local school districts and some businesses. The NEA, which started the program 16 years ago to encourage reading, was smart to tie the program to Dr. Seuss, who remains - more than two decades after his death - the world's most popular writer of modern children's books.
