Into The War | by Italo Calvino

History sure does rhyme

This is an image that is a mashup of the two opening pages to "Into the War", a book by Italo Calvino.

The book opens with a page of very mundane descriptions of some Italian teenagers just being teenagers. And then suddenly, Mussolini has announced Italy will enter the war.

borders and governments don't protect you, but they can sure get you killed

In honor of now CWing shit that you really shouldn't need sheltering from, just a reminder that the Duwamish tribe, the original tribe in the Seattle area, still isn't federally recognized, they receive no assistance at all from the federal government. No land, nothing, despite still living in Seattle, and especially tending to live in areas of Seattle that have been industrialized & terribly polluted. The Duwamish river's still a superfund site. This shit is happening right here and now.

These two ex-Slack product managers want to replace bus stations with industrial agriculture

Just a difference of opinions folks. Some people think transit should be free, some people think the government should round up, torture, and kill political opponents

episode 1098: Mourning Thanksgiving.

---------------------

Yesterday I learned

- thanksgiving has been celebrated in the US since the 1600s
- the "pilgrims and indians" bits of the myth were added in the 1800s as WASP propaganda

so I guess a reminder that if you live and/or work in , to make rent payments to the Duwamish Tribe.
