Red and Blue

My brother Steven and my mother. Steven asked me to find a picture of him from 1963 where he is smiling. Seems that 1963 - 1965 were sober years for my bro. I think that "Iron Man" had a reputation to live up to in the neighborhood...

Of course, too, his political leanings had begun to formulate...

My brother Ken's had, too, and they were going in the opposite direction from Steven's...

Here stands a future Democrat and a future Republican. Don't let their tie colors fool you...you can see it in their hair styles (long bangs vs. crew cut) and their shoes ( loafers vs. wing tips...)


Yes, Steve was leaning toward red (and look, is that a smile I see??)


and Kenny toward blue. (What the heck is that backdrop anyway, a shower curtain? Those wacky liberals!)

Who are those guys? I certainly don't remember my brothers this way--any pictures of them in a more relaxed state?
