               A Thought for the Day                   

That until very recently indeed travel guaranteed travail should come as no surprise since the technological inputs into making meandering more or less as safe as staying put—roadway construction methods, new means of locomotion altogether that separate travelers from the world outside their movement modalities, not to mention such extravaganzas as satellite global positioning and such—have only come to pass in the past couple of centuries or so: as with so much that contemporary humans take for granted, presuming the rectitude of privilege and entitlement that in the past at most only the rulers of society might expect, these attitudes are not only completely delusional, thus inducing false consciousness, but they are also profoundly dangerous, inasmuch as they encourage actors without a clue to venture forth into actual wilderness as if they can expect the protections of airports and seaports and Interstate Highway rest stops in so doing.

                    This Day in History                  

In Puerto Rico, this date marks Emancipation Day, which has, of course, yet to occur, while around the globe today is, apropos of warming climes, World Water Day; in the islands that we now know as England a thousand one hundred and forty-six years ago, the indigenous fighters of AEthelred of Wessex drove back Danish invaders at the Battle of Marton; King Ferdinand five hundred nine years ahead of the here and now designated Amerigo Vespucci as Spain’s primary imperial navigator; a hundred thirteen years subsequent to that, in 1621,English Pilgrims in Plymouth Colony negotiated a peace process with the Wampanoags indigenous to the region; MORE HERE

                  Quote of the Day                       
  • Nicht vor Irrthum zu bewahren, ist die Pflicht des Menschen erziehers; sondern den Irrenden zu leiten, ja ihn seinen Irrthum aus vollen Bechern ausschlürfen zu lassen, das ist Weisheit der Lehrer. Wer seinen Irrthum nur kostet, hält lange damit Haus; er freuet sich dessen als eines seltenen Glücks; aber wer ihn ganz erschöpft, der muß ihn kennenlernen.
    • Not to keep from error, is the duty of the educator of men, but to guide the erring one, even to let him swill his error out of full cups — that is the wisdom of teachers. Whoever merely tastes of his error, will keep house with it for a long time, … but whoever drains it completely will have to get to know it.

Numero Uno—“Mr. Speaker, when a young woman graduates from college and starts looking for a job, she is likely to have a frustrating and even demeaning experience ahead of her.  If she walks into an office for an interview, the first question she will be asked is, ‘Do you type?”There is a calculated system of prejudice that lies unspoken behind that question.  Why is it acceptable for women to be secretaries, librarians, and teachers, but totally unacceptable for them to be managers, administrators, doctors, lawyers, and Members of Congress. MORE HERE
