    around the house...knowing we kids would find them irresistible. It was, I think, part of her retribution against Mccarthy. Having been in the Communist Party for a few months as a teen she lived in fear of what would happen to her & her young kids during McCarthy's reign.

    Like HUAC, the name McCarthy causes an evisceral reaction in me. I'm not a Communist, but there's nothing I find so distasteful as rabid anti-communism...and sadly it still has a hold on some even here.

    Thanks Dave for this excellent diary.
