Today in History
1827 1st Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans
1844 Dominican Republic gains independence from Haiti (National Day)
1869 John Menard is 1st black to make a speech in Congress
1925 Hitler's resurrects NSDAP political party in Munich
1933 Nazis set fire to German parliament, blame it on Communists
1942 1st transport of French Jews to nazi-Germany
1957 Mao's speech "On Correct Handling of Contradictions Among People"
1962 South-Vietnam pres Ngo Dinh Diem's palace bombed, 1st US killed

OK, it is the 3rd day of lent, but you can always remember what a good time you had on Fat Tuesday.



This seems to be the month of “fascism par excellence” from hitler’s arrest and ressurection of his thugs, mussolini’s rise, and mao’s speech on “wholesale torture of those who dare to think”.Check out mao's adjustment methods-guns and tanks. Silencing a person does not convert them.The silver lining is that on this day the Domincan Republic celebrated its independence.

We Americans are a lucky lot when it comes to civil liberties and freedom of thought, religion, and the right to free speech.It is our duty to speak up when we know something is wrong, it is our duty to vote, to conserve our resources, and to be nice and respectful of each other's right to think and feel differently than we do.

All of us have the responsibility to do no harm to another person and to give each other dignity simply because we are all human beings. Someone had a dream about that. Oh yeah, Martin Luther King. As this month is coming to an end, let's not forget Dr. King's dream. Let peace begin with each of us and let us judge each other by the content of our character, not the color of our skin, gender, religion, or race.

Births
1923 Dexter Gordon, US, tenor saxophonist/actor (Connection)
1930 Joanne Woodward, Thomasville Ga, actress (3 Faces of Eve, Rachel)
980 Chelsea Clinton, daughter of President Clinton (1993-2001)

Dexter Gordon was an incredible jazz saxophone player.One of his greatest hits " Our man in Paris". He was one of the greats of the Blue Note recording label.


It's funny but I have something in common with both Joanne Woodward and Chelsea Clinton. Joanne and I both married great men and Chelsea graduated from Stanford and I really wanted to go there. I know,close- but no....I won't go there.
