Examining the Ages Over Dinner

Examining the Ages Over Dinner is an idea that evolved from over fifty years of conversations between friends, Bob Houghtaling and Wayne Politelli. We have a love of history and are concerned that its minimization can lead to an erosion of the social fabric. We realize that lessons from history are not always clear, but by having discussions about the past, additional insight into our present just might come into fruition. Hopefully, the exchange of views that ensue might just be both relevant and fun.
