    Review: 'The Invisible Bridge' by Rick Perlstein
    It's a cliché. The college professor asks for a show of hands. How many of you know about the Vietnam war? Nobody. Watergate? A sprinkling. (Maybe they saw the movie with Robert Redford on Netflix.) The kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst and that whole...
