When the World Tilted--Again - WSJ.com
JUNE 15, 2009 | Wall Street Journal | By EDWARD KOSNER who
reviews 1959: The Year Everything Changed, By Fred Kaplan (Wiley, 322
pages, $27.95). Kaplan, a magazine writer and columnist for Slate,
makes an intriguing case that 1959 was an authentic annus mirabilis. It
was the year that Fidel Castro took power in Cuba, Berry Gordy started
Motown records in Detroit, Allen Ginsberg recited "Howl" at Columbia,
the Pioneer spacecraft blasted off, the dirtiest version of "Lady
Chatterley's Lover" was published, Toyota and Datsun (now Nissan) made
their American debuts and Ford mercy-killed the Edsel, the microchip was
introduced, the first U.S. soldiers were killed in Vietnam, Frank Lloyd
Wright's Guggenheim Museum opened, MLK went to India to study
nonviolence, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg were shown at the
MoMA, and Searle sought approval to sell the first birth-control pill,
Enovid. In sum, a year "when the world as we now know it began to take
form."

question, What’s Chapter 2?” he said. “If we do this, what will they do?
Then what? Then what? Try to think two, three, four moves out.”
* Making the boss successful.
* Meetings imply an action--a policy decision.
