Pinned toot

1) @ThomasWic has explained again and again the word CLANDESTINE. He has provided examples and has stated flat out that he is done hand holding those who need constant reassurance. I do not know him nor do I know @Debradelai ; however I have been here since QV's inception. My strengths are in English and History, both of which I taught at the high school level until I had to retire due to ill health. Perhaps for those of you who want to SEE something happen, this thread will help you.

Great quote out of the article:

Hanlon’s Razor:

“Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.”

Interesting article..

The evolution of the ultimate punishment: How the death penalty in the U.S has changed over 250 years

Curious to see how much things have changed yet how much things haven't..

What I often find perplexing is the mentality of people who are against the Death penalty, to the point of initially coming up with means to make the process 'more humane' to outright banning it - often those w/o who have never been harmed by the criminals nor crime..

From my wife's facebook feed:

Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, 'Esther, I'd like to ride in that helicopter.'

Esther always replied, 'I know Morris, but that Helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars.'

On Holocaust Memorial Day, survivors recall the horrors they faced as they were transported to Auschwitz and hid from the Nazis

This article is hard to read but equally important that folks DO read it and note tales of what really happened.

It burns my bacon when I hear idiocy such as 'People who eat meat are Evil..' or other moronic statements like that. The Holocaust was not THAT long ago & folks are not being taught that there's REAL evil in this world..

4...I accidentally deleted the last toot in this thread 😱
Anyway...This is the book and my cousin-in-law's info in case anyone else would like to see what's on offer.
Like our dear @masterblaster, my pictures come out sideways when I post. Sorry for the inconvenience.
/END the name of Fitzsimmons, who was accused of murdering his grandparents.

During Prohibition, Bradford, PA (home of Zippo lighters and Case knives) as well as Olean, NY (15 miles north) and the surrounding towns on both sides of the State lines was known as "Little Italy". Many a mobster and bootlegger found refuge in the area! There's a book about the life of Charles Margiotti titled Tiger at the Bar which is an interesting read too.
I'm sure I will find this an interesting read.
... I recognized some of the names within.
There are a LOT of unexplained mysteries from my neck of the woods. For example, the 1st recorded Civil War soldier's suicide was a man who lived about 15 miles from me.
Eliot Ness, the man in charge of "The Untouchables" died in Coudersport, PA. Another famous case was that of Dr. John Bentley, who died of suspected spontaneous human combustion in 1966.
Remember F. Lee Bailey, Esq. of the OJ Simpson "dream team"? He defended a murder suspect...

Coming home from the hour and a half drive to see my pain specialist, I stopped in at my cousin-in-law's store. He has tons of COOL stuff for sale!
Usually, I head straight back to his office, where we shoot the breeze for a few minutes before I head on home.
Today, however, as I walked in, some books caught my eye. I realized that I knew the author from way back when, so I bought one of his books! There are 4 others that I will add at a later date.
I know this will be a good read...

@jbinnall: "Note to the left: the days of being free to impugn General Flynn's good character are over. Today, @TrueGenFlynn settled his defamation lawsuit against Everett Stern for $150K. From here forward, if you want to defame an American hero, have your checkbook ready.

I'm proud of the Binnall Law Group team, especially @JasonGreaves and @JaredRoberts20 for their hard work and dedication on behalf of @TrueGenFlynn to accomplish this excellent result."
