For your initial post, listen to ?Little Boxes? (1962) by Malvina Reynolds, ?Mother?s Little Helper? (1966) by the Rolling Stones, or ?Pleasant Valley Sunday? (1967) by the Monkees.

Then, compare/contrast that with at least one specific example from the assigned readings this week, or from your own research, about how these new suburban communities represented the American Dream.
