Reminder this happened….

“I will be performing the hand jive”

16 October. The question is: Shame. What is its origin? Where did it come from? Where did it go? Where did it come from, Cotton Eye Joe?

Oh, shit! It’s midnight and I found this on YouTube and I am happily shook.

Without Judith Jones, the world may never have known about the life of Anne Frank or the cuisine of Julia Child. 

The legendary editor rescued Frank’s personal journal from a publisher’s reject pile and introduced her first-person account of the Holocaust as “The Diary of a Young Girl.” 

She also spent months trying Child’s recipes that filled the pages of “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” 

Jones died today at her summer home in Walden, Vermont. She was 93.

Obama bids his final farewell to the nation from his adopted hometown of Chicago

President Barack Obama bid farewell to the nation on Tuesday in an emotional speech that sought to comfort a country on edge over rapid economic changes, persistent security threats and the election of Donald Trump.

Forceful at times and tearful at others, Obama’s valedictory speech in his hometown of Chicago was a public meditation on the many trials the U.S. faces as Obama takes his exit. For the challenges that are new, Obama offered his vision for how to surmount them, and for the persistent problems he was able to overcome, he offered optimism that others, eventually, will. (AP)

Views from America’s National Parks

The United States has 59 protected areas known as national parks that are operated by the National Park Service, an agency of the Department of the Interior. National parks must be established by an act of the United States Congress.

The first national park, Yellowstone, was signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant in 1872, followed by Mackinac National Park in 1875 (decommissioned in 1895), and then Rock Creek Park (later merged into National Capital Parks), Sequoia and Yosemite in 1890. The Organic Act of 1916 created the National Park Service “to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wildlife therein, and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.”

Many current National Parks had been previously protected as National Monuments by the President under the Antiquities Act before being upgraded by Congress. Seven national parks (including six in Alaska) are paired with a National Preserve, areas with different levels of protection that are administered together but considered separate units and whose areas are not included in the figures below.

Supreme Court denies review of same-sex marriage cases

BuzzFeed: The US Supreme Court on Monday denied to review gay marriage appeals from Indiana, Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia and Wisconsin.

By rejecting these appeals, lower court rulings that struck down same-sex marriage bans in these states will stand.

The South’s Stunning Embrace of Gay Marriage

The Oscar-winning movie Dallas Buyers Club brought a vivid reminder of the harsh realities of what it was like to be a gay in the culturally conservative South of the mid-1980s. As someone born, churched, and educated in the South during that era, I remember that the idea of being gay or lesbian was simply dismissed, and the term “homosexuality” was reserved for hushed conversations about those sinful urban areas far north and west of the Mason-Dixon Line. While the film has been in theaters, however, the news has also been filled with contemporary coverage of a remarkable bevy of judicial decisions overturning bans on same-sex marriage in southern states such as Virginia, Kentucky, and Texas. While serving as the lead author of a recent study from the Public Religion Research Institute about attitudes about same-sex marriage, I was astounded at the shifts we found in southern attitudes over the past decade.

These changes are, of course, happening amid shifts in the country as a whole. Between 2003, when Massachusetts became the first state to legalize same-sex marriage, and December 2013, support for allowing gay and lesbian couples to legally marry rose 21 percentage points nationwide, from 32 percent to 53 percent. As of the end of 2013, the number of states recognizing same-sex marriages increased to 17 plus the District of Columbia. And there has been enough judicial ferment at the state level that most court observers believe the issue will end up, in the not too distant future, before the U.S. Supreme Court. Our recent study confirms that these changes cannot be explained away as merely another example of federal judicial activism circumventing the will of the people in southern states. Rather, we are witnessing dramatic cultural transformations, which include changing minds even among culturally and religiously conservative Americans in the South.

Can Hillary Play This Game?

John Cassidy on Hillary Clinton’s recent criticisms of Obama’s cautious approach to foreign policy:

“If Clinton’s intention was to extend her political reach and attract the support of conservatives, she succeeded. If she was seeking to present a foreign-policy vision attractive to progressives and centrists, she might need to think again.”

N.J. Gov. Chris Christie apologizes for bridge scandal

CNBC: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie apologized Thursday for the George Washington Bridge scandal.

Christie also said he had fired a deputy chief of staff, Bridget Anne Kelly, whose email which read: ‘Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee,’ served as evidence of the Christie administration’s involvement in lane closures.
