For years I have just linked to the French Revolution page on Wikipedia. BTW, we can march on Bastille Day 7/14. Don't buy anything from Wal-mart that day, especially, or any other. The Waltons are billionaires, you may be paying for their employees' Medicaid.
 
One of my all time favorite Ted Talks by +Nick Hanauer.

Nick Hanauer is a rich guy, an unrepentant capitalist — and he has something to say to his fellow plutocrats: Wake up! Growing inequality is about to push our societies into conditions resembling pre-revolutionary France. Hear his argument about why a dramatic increase in minimum wage could grow the middle class, deliver economic prosperity ... and prevent a revolution.

Earned a 1966 quarter running 3mi. No silver since 1964.  Oh, well. No, I did not cross the street to pick it up. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarter_(United_States_coin)

Reward-based programs were much more commonly accepted than deposit-based programs, leading to higher rates of sustained abstinence from smoking.

43 deaths in May in a lower population than 1990 or mid 1970s. I got out in 1995, even though Hampden was a safe neighborhood down there. Selling heroin, percocet, benzos? Shooting the competition? So what. Shooting their girlfriend and 7yo child? Wrong, brother.
With three men dead from a pair of double shootings on Sunday, Baltimore recorded its deadliest month in more than 40 years.
