We have some interesting folks portrayed in the Biography section of the Booknook. At polar opposites politically are Sarah Palin in Going Rogue: An American Life and Barack Obama's The Audacity Of Hope. Moving to the topic of space we have First Man: The Life Of Neil A. Armstrong and Barbara Eden's autobiography Jeannie Out Of The Bottle. What do those two have in common? Remember the pretense of the TV show I Dream Of Jeannie. Major Nelson played by Larry Hagman, who later starred in Dallas, was an American astronaut who splashed down the Pacific Ocean during a mission, landed on an island, found a bottle and opened it to find Jeannie inside! Astronauts and space were all the rage in 1960's and the antics of the otherwise professional and proper Major Nelson saddled with the troublesome and impetuous Jeannie led to no end of hilarious story lines for the writers.
