100 Years In 10 Minutes

Some interesting orthography and grammar in there. Must be someone that speaks English as a second language, or was an honor student at an American public school.

1971 got gypped.

What's next?

There are two ways to view the past century: it was a huge suckfest or else the idea of individual freedom prevailed against enormous challenges. Maybe both are true.

My picks for the best moments are VE Day/VJ Day and the Apollo 11 landings. The worst moments are too many to quantify, sadly.

BTW, the arts got gypped. Maybe I need to make a video, huh?

Is it all war? Did no person bring forth life during the last 100 years? Did no person create literature, art or music? I guess it isn't as exciting to watch. Oh well, that's the way it goes and that is why I read Sippican Cottage - even if you aren't fond of Old Beetle Brow. Your heir and a spare also give hope that life is brought forth and your lovely wife brightens up any dull day (but you knew that). Keep up your writing and posting and it will always give me a sense of hope. Thank you and may 2012 be just the best ever.

It can't be denied... stuff certainly happens. But I will never believe the "official" explanation, whether it derives from the government or the news media. That goes for moon landings, Kennedy assassinations, September the 11th, and the never ending excuses for all of these wars without end, amen.
