WIN Wyoming

Thought Bullets
February 2001

Robert D. Putnam published a book in 1999 called Bowling Alone. Mr. Putnam suggests that four decades of a steady decline in social commitment have substantially changed American life. He makes a strong argument for a direct link between social connectedness and physical health. After reading Mr. Putnam’s work, we may want to consider adding a new principle to WIN Wyoming encouraging a social connectedness. Here are some of the highlights from the book.
