EARLY YEARS

IT WAS, JUNE 1953,HOT AND AIR CONDITIONERS DID NOT YET EXIST IN MY LIFE,THAT MUCH I CAN HONSETLY SAY ,I CAN REMEMBER.ICAN NOT HELP WHAT STUCK IN MY MIND IN THOSE DAYS ,I WAS ONLY THREE GOIN ON FIFTEEN.I RECALL A FEELING OF ,WELL, TROUBLE, YOU KNOW,THAT FEELING YOU MIGHT GET WHEN YOU SENCE PROBLEMS--CHANGE ABOUT TO COME.THE FAMILY WAS LIVING ON THACKERY ST IN CRANSTON RI.IT HAD BEEN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD UNTIL THAT SUMMER.APARANTLY, THE BLACKS WERE MOVEING INTO THE AREA AND AL LIEBERMAN WAS UPSET. AL WAS ALBERT JOESPH LIEBERMAN, SON OF SAMUEL LIEBERMAN ,AN IMPORT FROM AUSTRIA,FLEEING NAZI INVADERS TO AMERICA IN THE EARLY THIRTIES.AS A JEW ,HIS ATTITUDE ABOUT RACE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE UNDERSTANDING,BUT AL WAS NOT VERY GRAIOUS TO OTHERS LESS FORTUNATE,HE OFTEN USED THE  N   WORD.Well,not much to say about Al.A fake all his life,he inherited,his main occupation, and died in 2007.Accordiningly, his family was related to ben seigle, the jewish gangster, and joe lieberman.AL was always blending stories to his likeing. He was a hard man to like and even harder to believe,i did not bother.
