I worked for America’s best known candle company. This weekend (10/5) they were supposed to release a 10% off $10, 30% off $30, or 50% off $50 coupon. Except there was a typo when they released it today. Those percentages became dollar amounts. All positive vibes are welcome. Hell has come.

The Jewish participation in the radical student movements of the 1960s and early 1970s was comparable to the Jewish participation in Eastern European socialism and prewar American Communism. In the first half of the 1960s, Jews (5 percent of all American students) made up between 30 and 50 percent of SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) membership and more than 60 percent of its leadership; six out of eleven Steering Committee members of the Free Speech Movement at Berkeley; one-third of the Weathermen arrested by the police; 50 percent of the membership of California’s Peace and Freedom Party; two-thirds of the white Freedom Riders who went to the South in 1961 to fight racial segregation; one-third to one-half of the “Mississippi Summer” volunteers of 1964 (and two of the three murdered martyrs); 45 percent of those who protested the release of students’ grades to draft boards at the University of Chicago; and 90 percent of the sample of radical activists studied by Joseph Adelson at the University of Michigan. In 1970, in the wake of the invasion of Cambodia and the killing of four students at Kent State (three of whom were Jewish), 90 percent of the Jewish students attending schools at which there were demonstrations claimed to have participated. In a 1970 nationwide poll, 23 percent of all Jewish college students identified themselves as “far left” (compared to 4 percent of Protestants and 2 percent of Catholics); and a small group of radical activists studied at the University of California was found to be 83 percent Jewish. A large study of student radicalism conducted by the American Council of Education in the late 1960s found that a Jewish background was the single most important predictor of participation in protest activities

It does sometimes especially if there are lots of ….s etc apparently, but I also do receive around 30-50 asks a day so I can’t answer all of them!

Some are repeats of each other too but you may not necessarily see the ask I replied to that is similar to yours if you’re offline. If you really want an ask answered send it again or come off anon as I always try to answer non anon asks either publicly or privately or come chat with me in the bubbles if you want to have a discussion :)

not to sound like an Abused Kid™ but parents and other adults are untrustworthy and can turn on you without a moment’s notice


1940s (left) and 1972 (right)

Dorothy Putnam was born in Massachusetts in 1895. As a young woman, Putnam moved to Los Angeles, where she developed an interest in automobiles. In 1918, she became the first licensed female chauffeur in California, her clients including Carole Lombard, Clark Gable and Charlie Chaplin. She also won a number of driving contests in L.A. during the 1920s.

In the 1930s Dorothy met her lifelong partner Lois Mercer. They both served in the Air Force during WW2 and moved into a Los Angeles apartment together after the war. Louis became a bookkeeper and Dorothy started working for the LA Sheriff’s Department. They stayed together for the rest of their lives.
Louis died in 1989 at the age of 94, Dorothy less than two years later at the age of 95. They were together for over 50 years.
