Physical strength is not the only force that oppresses the men in the book. It is the rigid, predatory human tendencies, not Curley, that defeat Lennie and George in the end. Lennie&rsquo s physical size and strength prove powerless in the face of these universal laws, he is utterly defenseless and therefore disposable.

Mice, however, apparently use distinct sets of genes to tackle trauma, burns, and bacterial toxins—when the authors compared the activity of the human sepsis-trauma-burn genes with that of the equivalent mouse genes, there was very little overlap. No wonder drugs designed for the mice failed in humans: they were, in fact, treating different conditions!

John Steinbeck immortalized the plight of one such family, the Joads, in his most famous novel, The of Wrath. In several of his fiction works, including Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck illustrates how grueling, challenging, and often unrewarding the life of migrant farmers could be. Just as George and Lennie dream of a better life on their own farm, the Great Plains farmers dreamed of finding a better life in California. The state&rsquo s mild climate promised a longer growing season and, with soil favorable to a wider range of crops, it offered more opportunities to harvest. Despite these promises, though, very few found it to be the land of opportunity and plenty of which they dreamed.

I saw these guys back at Warped Tour seven odd years ago. They were amazing then and are amazing now. All of the quality they put out is mind blowing. Their music has such an emotional impact and is honestly a form of therapy. Support these dedicated musicians and good honest people by paying for your music. This is the only band I not only purchase on iTunes but also have to buy the cd for the experience, It s the cheapest form of therapy there is. Keep doing your thing boys! Still have that $655 bill I had you guys sign. So deserving of this success
Two traveling companions, George and Lennie, wander the country during the Depression, dreaming of a better life for themselves. Then, just as heaven is within their grasp, it is inevitably yanked away. The film follows Steinbeck's novel closely, exploring questions of strength, weakness, usefulness, reality and utopia, bringing Steinbeck's California vividly to life. Written by Amy Thomasson
So, all of this is to simply say, Thank you. You did what teachers hope to do, make an impression, make a difference. You were not afraid to be yourself as a teacher and as an individual, and that in itself is an inspiration. You shared what you loved and cared about and it got passed on to many of us who sat in your classroom.
Well, anyway you have to read the book or see the movie, but it goes to show the difference between mice and men all most a hundred years before genetic medicine realized that all creatures have a little different molecular genetic code
Hearing the story again also made me wonder how classroom discussions of the issues raised in it would differ today. How would students, parents and administrators today respond to the issues of morality, racism and sexism? Does anyone have the courage to tackle such issues in classrooms these days by reading a book like this?
