Absence of toleration ultimately leads to genocide. The greatest example of genocide in recent times is the Holocaust involving Europe’s Jewish population at the hands of the Nazis during World War II. This differed from other genocides in that when the persecution began it was legal under German law (see Nuremberg Laws). But for many other nationalities before and after, the killings took on a different character.

From the song “Paradise” by John Prine. “And daddy won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County, Down by the Green River where Paradise lay, well I’m sorry my son, but you’re too late in asking, Mr. Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away.” This photo was taken in the neighboring county, Hopkins. “Paradise” (1952).
This photo, “Blaine, West Virginia (1953)“, should be easily recognizable as symbolic of West Virginia even without caption information. This image could have only be taken in West Virginia. Blaine is located in Mineral County near the Maryland border. If you have been following the images on DPI for any length of time I think that you will agree that this is a classic image of West Virginia.
“Bronze Star“; Long Island, N. Y. (July 9, 2018). My father’s. For heroic achievement in a combat zone. Saipan (July 7, 1944).
It may not be the former French penal colony at Devil’s Island, but I would prefer to skip the tour nonetheless. A prison in paradise: “Papillion“; New Caledonia (1968). Happy Halloween everyone!
This photo appeared in our Twitter feed on October 23. In today’s Wall Street Journal (Oct. 30, 2019), p. A12 you can read about another man’s love for his Studebaker pickup truck.
I am a retired high school Social Studies teacher. I think it would be fair for you to ask which topic that I taught do I think motivated my students the most? You might have guessed the French Revolution or the Crusades. Maybe it was something in American History or Government. The Civil War? Slavery? Bill of Rights? In 20th century world history maybe it was the rise of Nazi Germany, World War II, Watergate? No, no, no and nope. Mighty Casey would have struck out. All would have been wrong guesses. So you say well how about sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll? Wrong again. The number one topic which maintains student interest is FOOD!
Roast beef or fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy will drive students to beg me to stop. But in this blog we will have to settle for hot dogs.
So said Raymond Babbitt played by Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man (1988). He was correct if you only are concerned with Qantas in the jetliner age. Qantas has just completed a test run from New York to Sydney in 19 hours 16 minutes. So for Raymond it will not take as long to get to Australia so as to get to Los Angeles to be with his brother Charlie and see Fernando Valenzuela pitch for the Dodgers.
I had the opportunity to be in Fayetteville in the summer of 1968. I said be, not visit. This was during the time of my military service, and Fayetteville is just down the road apiece from Ft. Bragg. The Market House is the focus of the town. It lies at a crossroads, but for me I was only concerned with Hay Street, which lies to the left of this blog image from the Market House and is opposed to the right by Person Street.
