History in the making, January 2, 2016

History in the making: items of note, January 2, 2016It was reported in today’s print edition of the Asheville Citizen-Times that a new state law went into effect, requiring people who’ve filed for unemployment benefits to make at least 5 job contacts a week.  It had been 2.  How will that work?  Are there that many jobs for which a person is qualified?  Can you apply to the same job twice if it continues to be listed? Paul Bonesteel, noted Asheville filmmaker, revealed on Facebook that a…See More

Tarantino, eminent domain, and emancipation Tarantino comes to townQuentin Tarantino’s New Year’s gore and gabfest, The Hateful Eight, is gutted by New Yorker reviewer Anthony Lane, who says that Tarantino toys with rather than explores history, using it “for boyish fantasies of revenge, as if enormous crimes could be undone, after the event, by lone and wanton acts of humiliation.” …See More

Hello Amanda,

 

I have been in Colorado Springs, I just flew in today and got your friends message. Actually I'm not quite sure how that part of this site works, but I do put a lot on my blog. Which needs attention I'm afraid.

 

I'm made copies of my speech in Colorado. I'll get one to you. It's pretty cool. It's about my Union hero, Gen. William Jackson Palmer.

 

See you soon.

Terry
