McCullough sounds off
Pulitzer Prize-winner David McCullough got a little fired up while addressing a group of Globe subscribers this week. Speaking at a Globe Talks event about “the unconscionable differential between the people at the top and the people at the bottom’’ of the income scale, McCullough sounded more like a candidate for higher office than a chronicler of historical events. “I personally don’t like it when people talk about the middle class,’’ said McCullough, who won Pulitzers for his books “Truman’’ and “John Adams.’’ “The president talks about the middle class - I don’t like that. If you have a middle class, that means you have a lower class and an upper class. No, we’re not a class society. . . . We shouldn’t think that way. We’re Americans. We’re trying to work together.’’ At that, the crowd began to applaud. “I’m announcing my candidacy tomorrow,’’ McCullough said with a grin.
