I thought this was pretty interesting. The Library of Congress has recently released about 1600 pictures from the early 1940's. I thought they were really interesting to look at since these were in color - I don't know if I've ever seen a color picture from that time. Take a look.

I know I posted this in text format a few weeks ago. I just think it's interesting to watch the video and see the people in the audience, the administrators and her fellow grad's turning to each other and whispering or snickering. I can only imagine what they are saying to each other: "can she say that?" "are they just going to sit there and let her say those things?" It just makes me happy that there are people out there who share these feelings with me. This is one brave chica and my hat's off to her for having the courage to challenge the system, especially in this setting. Bravo!

With 92% of the precincts reporting Basil Marceaux received .5% of the vote for Governor of Tennessee. That may not seem like much but that means that at least 3,339 people cast their vote for this man. I'm still trying to figure out if these people really wanted their state governed by Mr. Marceaux or if it's one of those cruel vote-for-the-crazy-person-for-homecoming-king things.
For your viewing pleasure there is a really funny Colbert Report bit linked here.
