New School Textbooks

8 Sep

September 7, 2017

It’s a new school year and that means new textbooks. I’m glad to see that schools are finally replacing the old and out of date books they’ve used for years, but I’m not sold on the new, corporate-sponsored texts. Do I really want Elmo and Big Bird explaining the My Lai Massacre? 

Big Bird had to be airlifted to a MASH unit




Picture Postcard: Red Bank War Memorial Statue

12 Sep

September 12, 2013

These were taken in Red Bank New Jersey. This statue was erected after World War One, and then amended for every war thereafter. (The World War Two plaque is around the corner on the right side.) It lists every local soldier who died in a war.

Let’s hope there don’t have to be any more additions.
