The Managed Heart: Commercialization of Human Feeling, Twentieth Anniversary Edition, With a New Afterword
In private life we try to induce or suppress love, envy, and anger through deep acting or "emotional work," just as we manage our outer expressions through surface acting. But what happens when this system of adjusting emotions is adapted to commercial purposes? Hochschild examines the cost of this kind of "emotional labor." She vividly describes from a humanist and feminist perspective the process of estrangement from personal feelings and its role as an "occupational hazard" for one-third of America's workforce.
Space Shuttle: 20 Years title page
I made it my project to get the book signed by those astronauts (including non-NASA astronauts and candidates) associated with the space shuttle program, whether or not they flew, starting from 1978 and selection of the first group (the TFNGs) specifically chosen for the space shuttle, to the Group 19 astronauts.
The nine Group 20 astronauts were chosen in the twilight of shuttle operations but told specifically they would not fly. Of the 27 astronauts - not including Bill Pogue, who was on extended leave but whose official website states he left NASA in 1977 - at the time the TFNGs were announced, I have autographs from ten of them. Another three of those 27 - Bob Overmyer; Karl Henize; and Deke Slayton - died years before this book was published.
Bill Lenoir was another one of the 27 who died, in 2010.
This book has possibly seen more of the United States than I have. While most of the signatures have come from astronauts met in the Connecticut-New York-New Jersey-Pennsylvania region, I have physically taken the book with me to a signing in California as well as to Massachusetts. The book has also been mailed to friends in Texas, North Carolina and Florida, and another friend brought the book with him to Virginia. And, as noted, the book started with a signing in Tennessee, and mailed to me.
They include, with brief (not complete notations), from left to right, top to bottom:
Bill Shepard: Commander of first ISS expedition.
Jay Buckley: Payload specialist, STS-90. Last Spacelab flight.
Bob Phillips: Originally scheduled as a payload specialist for Mission 61D/Spacelab 4, which was canceled even before the Challenger accident. He was too old to fly (whatever that means) when the mission finally flew as STS-40/SLS-1, and was an alternate PS.
Jake Garn: First Congressional observer, Mission 51D.
Pete Aldridge. As Undersecretary of the Air Force, he was scheduled to fly on the first Vandenberg AFB launch, STS-1V/Mission 62A, which was canceled after Challenger. He was surprised someone would want his autograph as he never flew.
Barbara Morgan: Alternate to Christa McAuliffe, she finally flew on STS-118. At the time of Columbia, her mission was originally scheduled to fly that November, on that orbiter.
Cady Coleman: At the time of her signing, her last mission was STS-93. She hoped she would get another flight, and Coleman is scheduled to fly on one of the ISS expeditions.
Rick Hauck: He was scheduled to command the first so-called Death Star flights, Mission 61F, carrying a liquid-fueled upper stage in the Shuttle's payload bay to launch the Ulysses space probe.
Leland Melvin. An ex-NFL player turned astronaut. He was co-manger of NASA's Educator Astronaut Program. Since his signing he has flown STS-122 and -129.
Brian Duffy. He used a specially-designed golf putter on a 1996 flight, STS-72, which is now in the United States Golf Association museum in New Jersey.
Fred Haise. Commander of Enterprise during the Approach and Landing tests. Was to have commanded STS-3, had it been a Skylab reboost mission. Yes, he did sign my book "Apollo 13," after he signed a car pass with "Enterprise CDR."
Tom Jones. Author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to NASA." Came close to having the shortest turnaround between Shuttle missions from April 1994 (STS-59) to October 1994 (STS-68).
Garrett Reisman. An astronaut candidate at the time of his signing, he has since flown on STS-123, as part of ISS Expedition 16/17, landing on STS-124; and on the last flight of Atlantis, STS-132.
Walter Cronkite. One of forty semifinalist candidates for the Journalist-in-Space flight, which was canceled following Challenger.
Dave Williams. Canadian astronaut. Holds the record for longest Canadian EVA, with three of the four spacewalks on STS-118.
Rick Searfoss. Buckey's commander on STS-90.
Taylor Wang. Only mission was the second Spacelab flight, Mission 51B/Spacelab 3. (Perhaps I got the better part of the deal in ordering a book with his signature, because Wang can be a tough signer, taking a long time to respond to autograph requests. Wang is responsible for the "To Hart" inscription.)
Winston Scott. On his STS-72 mission a satellite was retrieved which was launched by another country.
Rick Hieb. Took part not only in the first three-person spacewalk, but on the same STS-49 flight, bested a 20-year-old record for the longest EVA.
Total this page: 19 signatures, seven of which are contributors: Wang, Garn, Hauck, Duffy, Jones, Hieb and Williams.
Charles A. Lindbergh in Texas
Texas was important in the career of aviation hero Charles A. Lindbergh (1902-75). When he bought his first World War I surplus Jenny in Georgia, he flew it to Texarkana in 1923, so he could say he had flown in Texas -- the ambition of every barnstormer. With L. A. Klink in March 1924, he landed Klink's Canuck in Camp Wood while trying to fly to California. The next day in attempting a take-off, he accidentally crashed into Warren Puett's Store. No one was hurt, and his offer to pay for the damage was rejected. Then called "Slim," Lindbergh made many friends here. Two weeks after visiting Camp Wood, he became a U.S. Air Service cadet at Brooks Field, San Antonio. He completed advanced flight training at Kelly Field in 1925. On May 20-21, 1927, he made the first solo flight from New York to Paris, to world acclaim.
Later in 1927, he returned to Texas, surveying the first commercial transcontinental air route through Amarillo; in 1929, he inaugurated U.S.-Mexico airmail in Brownsville. A great aviation pioneer, he drew up and proved many major World War II; collaborated in medical research; helped organize the Berlin airlift; and remained a hero to people of Camp Wood and Texas.
