Hi there. My name is Pamela Starr Dewey (yes, that’s “Starr” with two RRs.) But most of my friends just call me Pam.

If you saw me walking down the street, you’d likely peg me for a typical grandmother. Yes, I’ve got the gray hair, wrinkles, and grandkids. You might assume I spend my days baking fresh cookies from scratch and making doilies, sitting in front of the fireplace in the evenings in my rocker reminiscing about the Good Old Days.

You’d be wrong. The only cookies at my house are Little Debbie Fudge Rounds that come in a box of 12…and I don’t make doilies, nor sit in a rocking chair. I sit in a rolling desk chair in front of one of the 8 active computers in our house (there are five of us and two cats here … that leaves an extra computer for guests…) and make websites. Over the years I’ve made fourteen or so websites, but now focus mostly on writing for my blogs. However… one of my websites, the Field Guide to the Wild World of Religionhas had close to 1 million visitors since I put it up.

Up until recently,  I traveled with my husband around the country to give educational and inspirational seminars at a wide variety of venues.

And I most assuredly do not reminisce about the Good Old Days. In fact I spend some of my time writing articles debunking the idea that any of the Old Days were all that good. Including the Fabulous Fifties when I grew up… they were anything but fabulous much of the time, except on sitcoms on TV. Mankind has been a mess for all of recorded history, and every generation has been a mixture of good and bad. I don’t waste time on nostalgia … I live in the now, and hope and work towards better things for the future.

The goal of my websites, and my blogs… including this Meet MythAmerica blog … is to offer some insight from my 69 years of experience, study, research, thinking, and dreaming into how mankind has gotten into the messes he’s created throughout history, and share what I am convinced is the path to a Better Way, in every aspect of life, individually and collectively.

I invite you to join me on this blog in my trek through American History.

    I think your doing a great job here. kids think that what they see today is how it’s always been, my grandson who is eight years old asked me the other day “what apps did you have when you were a wee boy Grandad” 🙂

    • Thanks for the kind words about my efforts. That’s cute and humorous about your grandson! Unfortunately, many 40 and 50 and 60 and 70 year olds are in some ways equally naive about the American past. They foolishly yearn for a “good old days” that only existed in their own minds. Some today want to “make America great again” and go back to a time when they THINK the average citizen was more noble, more kind, more godly or whatever. Maybe a century ago. But the reality is that there have always been good people, bad people, kind people, cruel people, generous people, greedy people in our America. My grandparents were alive a century ago. During their lifetime, town and city squares all across the land–North and South– were at times filled with huge crowds, sometimes in the thousands, who were gleefully watching another human be mercilessly tortured for hours and eventually killed…sometimes being burned to death, while the crowd roared its approval. And photographers took “souvenir photos” of the event. These events occurred by the thousands over a period of more than 75 years. If you are unfamiliar with this darker side of our past, I invite you to read my Special Report on this blog called “Terrorism on American Soil.” The link is in the right hand column of this page.

      That era was NOT a Great America I would have any interest in returning to. It’s an American past we need to face up to, learn from, and determine to be a part of changing for the better for the sake of your grandson and my grandchildren. Because sadly, that murderous, vindictive spirit is still abroad in the land…just tamed a tiny bit these days.
