Well-written piece on public conveyance in the Whitest American city of it's size. (PS Our all-White City Council members do not ride mass transit.)

New post up. Portrait of a livestock breeder's ascent to wealth and property. 'New Forest' still conveys romanticism, as a place of tranquil beauty in family lore.The 'Gay Nineties' dissipated, however; the cautionary tale reveals what can happen in unsettling, economic times (of protective tariffs).

If you're not part of 'The Neighborhood' with the Public Blogger, you are missing out. You'll not anywhere else hear Nicolae Ceausescu's fate coupled with quote from Ralph Ellison.

James Estill (1750-1782) was killed in a skirmish with Wyandot warriors less than a year after he drafted this will. It's rewarding to find another researcher interested in this subject. 'Munk,' one of the slaves accounted for, saved the life of my 4x great-grandfather James Berry (1752-1822) following 'Estill's Defeat.' I'm on the hunt for Munk's freedom papers, as it is purported he was the first slave freed in what is now Kentucky.

New post up. I'd long wondered who was referenced in Squire Turner's 1845 note to cousin Talton in Missouri. Kindred characters form a tapestry of sorts. They evoke affection and reflection in a turbulent era.

New post up. I support an ACLU of Oregon campaign for the City of Portland to abdicate participation in the FBI's domestic surveillance force ... the JTTF. I'm sure you'[ll learn something.

Flattened federal spending on basic research, inability to build out worker re-training in advance of driverless trucks; corporate consolidation and the absence of innovation incubators; federal withdrawal from science-based policing and climate research: I'm thinking the US' ruling elite steer us to the Dark Ages. Also has me thinking about information manipulation in our online environment.
