1 in 10 native American deaths are alcohol related this is 3 times more than the general population. “Stereotype implies that it's not real, and it's absolutely real. On my reservation, in my family, alcoholism was epidemic. So anybody who thinks it's a stereotype, alcoholism among Native Americans, is a romantic fool.” Was Sherman Alexie’s replied when asked about the stereotype of alcoholic Indians.

Two authors that discuss this method of giving deeper meanings to stories are Stephen King (in his essay “My Creature from the Black Lagoon) and Gloria Steinem (in her essay “Wonder Woman”). By comparing and contrasting the contents, styles, and purposes of King’s and Steinem’s essays, it is evident that both authors believe in this “never judge a book by its cover” attitude. Stephen King knows quite a bit about writing horror novels. After all, he has written over one- hundred books, many of those eventually being transformed into movies or television shows (p.582). In “My Creature from the Black Lagoon” King discusses his thoughts on horror films and challenges the reader to change their initial perception of the term “horror movie.” Most Americans think of a movie with lots of blood and monsters when they think about horror movies.
The book is written in third person and the structure is a personal narrative… Coming and going from past to present. Therefore the book “Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet” should be a book for everyone to enjoy at their own risk. “Cherry blossoms, old and dried, brown and brittle, pieces of something that had once been completely alive.” That was a fragment of writing to describe the imagery in the novel. When you read this book it’s not just words, it’s like a movie playing in your head. The selection of words is what gives the story life.

D. in Business Administration. Martin was very fond of watching film noir and reading books and had decided to create a website back in 1994.

Even though these two Presidents were both in term during the Great Depression, the two Presidents seemed to have very different viewpoints on how to take control and terminate the Great Depression. Herbert Hoover was America’s thirty-first President and was in office from 1929 to 1933 until Roosevelt succeeded him in his run for a second term. When the Great Depression first started to come up into conversations Hoover just thought of it as a little bump in the economy. Hoover then believed it would heal itself and everything would be fine, but, never had a backup plan. About a month later, the Great Depression took action on the stock market and would cause it to crash and put America and other countries around the world into a huge crisis.

Bush claimed that in September 2008 his chief economic advisors said that “The economic situation could at some point become worse than the Great Depression.” His presidency should be solely responsible for the death of the U.S economy. The unemployment rate in 2008 through early 2009 and the rate at which it rose was comparable to most of the recessions occurring after World War II, but was dwarfed by the 25% unemployment rate peak of the Great Depression. The economic decline of the Great Depression was -26.5%, markedly steeper than our modern recession’s -3.3% decline which was devastating. The extremity of the 1929 decline was enough to shut down more than half of the countries banks, close thousands of businesses, and leave millions with nothing. The numbers reflect that our Great Recession is nowhere near as catastrophic as the Depression, but this could be our modern Depression and we’ll use our American ingenuity to find a way through it.
