          Robert F. Williams was ahead of his time. An advocate of "Black Power" before the words were even invented, Williams was founder and president of a local NAACP chapter in North Carolina in 1960 when he advocated that African-Americans fight "violence with violence." Because of this statement he was kicked out of the NAACP chapter that he had created. Williams participated in a series of civil rights demonstrations in his hometown of Monroe, North Carolina that drew the wrath of violent white onlookers Racial tensions soared and a riot ensued. A white couple who were passing by, soon found themselves surrounded by a group of over 200 angry and armed African-Americans. Williams claimed that he tried to protect the couple from harm. But when Williams was charged with kidnapping, he decided to flee rather than face 1961 North Carolinian justice.

Robert F. Williams left the country and for the next eight years, he lived in Cuba, China, and North Vietnam. While in exile, he published several books and a newsletters called The Crusader denouncing capitalism, imperialism, and racism. Vietnam was always of special concern to Williams as evidenced in his speeches and writing.

          – Barbara Billingsley, who gained supermom status for her gentle portrayal of June Cleaver, the warm, supportive mother of a pair of precocious boys in "Leave it to Beaver," died Saturday. She was 94.
Billingsley, who had suffered from a rheumatoid disease, died at her home in Santa Monica, said family spokeswoman Judy Twersky.
When the show debuted in 1957, Jerry Mathers, who played Beaver, was 9, and Tony Dow, who portrayed Wally, was 12. Billingsley's character, the perfect stay-at-home 1950s mom, was always there to gently but firmly nurture both through the ups and downs of childhood.
Beaver, meanwhile, was a typical American boy whose adventures landed him in one comical crisis after another.
Billingsley's own two sons said she was pretty much the image of June Cleaver in real life, although the actress disagreed.
"She was every bit as nurturing, classy, and lovely as 'June Cleaver' and we were so proud to share her with the world," her son Glenn Billingsley said Saturday.
She did acknowledge that she may have become more like June as the series progressed.
"I think what happens is that the writers start writing about you as well as the character they created," she once said. "So you become sort of all mixed up, I think."
A wholesome beauty with a lithe figure, Billingsley began acting in her elementary school's plays and soon discovered she wanted to do nothing else.

IS IT

          too much to ask for the death penalty for smokers who toss their butts on the ground?

          or littering, at all?

AND

          is it too much, that when i'm on the bus at 7:45 a.m. and it's packed like a sardine can, to grab those half dozen or so Vernon Highschoolers, who sit in the aisle seat with either their backpack in the seat next to them, or their imaginary friend, while staring at everyone standing crammed around them, like they're the prince/ princess touring the zoo, refusing to move their ass and let someone else have the unused seat next to them, and throw them off the bus on their ear? i mean, i appreciate that given their 'skullcandy' headphones, their i-tunes player, their 'blackberry' that they're texting endlessly on and their small nations income of clothing attire; they're really making a conscious eco-decision to take the bus instead of their 'rolls royce', but still, i want to crush their fucking skulls. and then go slap their parents upside the head with their kids bloody nike's.

AND

          does the new no cel phone while driving law include those m-f-krs on bikes?

          Known as Flocabulary, the program is a music-based educational tool that uses raps, rhythms and rhymes to help students learn and memorize everything from vocabulary and English to math and social studies.
About 15 teachers have complained or expressed concern about the rap song lyrics, said Ed Allen, president of the Oklahoma City American Federation of Teachers.
"I just don't think we were real careful where we deployed it," Allen said. "Not all parts of it are real affective for the more troubled youth."
It is the U.S. history curriculum that has raised concern.
One of the rap songs — "Old Dead White Men" — chronicles the shortcomings of the early leaders in the United States.
Of President James Monroe's tenure, the rap says: "White men getting richer than Enron./ They stepping on Indians, women and blacks./ Era of Good Feeling doesn't come with the facts."
That's followed up by an assessment of President Andrew Jackson's checkered dealings with American Indians.
"Andrew Jackson, thinks he's a tough guy./ Killing more Indians than there are stars in the sky./ Evil wars of Florida killing the Seminoles./ Saying hello, putting Creek in the hell holes./ Like Adolf Hitler he had the final solution./ 'No, Indians, I don't want you to live here anymore.'"
Springer said he was concerned about some of the lyrics, and that's why the district is holding off on the program until it's been evaluated.
Flocabulary CEO and co-founder Alex Rappaport said the lyrics are made intentionally provocative and sometimes humorous to create student engagement among some of the toughest-to-reach students in the nation.
"In general, the purpose of our program is to motivate students, and we often say the enemy here is student apathy," Rappaport said. "We want students to ask questions and challenge assumptions that are made and think critically about historical themes."

          When the two main loves in your life are helping people and reading comic books, the call is loud and clear: Become a superhero.

He calls himself the Watchman. He won't give his real name.

His identity is obscured by a bright red mask that covers half his goateed face. He wears black boots, black pants, black leather gloves and a black trench coat, but there's a large yellow circle on the chest of his black hooded sweatshirt, with a big W.

"I'm what people refer to as a real-life superhero," he says.

By night, on weekends, he patrols Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood, looking for injustice and evildoers. By day? That's a mystery.

"While most reactions to what I do are positive, there are a few negative responses," he explains, adding that the disguise protects his family - a wife and two young sons - from any of that. "I'm the one who decided to do this, not them," he says. "They should not have to suffer for it."

For him, it's not about fulfilling a childhood fantasy, or getting the attention of late-night bar patrons.

"Somebody needs to do something," explains the Watchman, who contemplated becoming a police officer before donning his mask.

Aneristic Illusions / TECHNO RIOT 2010 - FRENCH SPAGS, what's the story?

SO

          last year's 'peace' event busted into, busting skulls. Ditto 2010. What's the local perception on this?

CURIOUSLY

          as the media has continued to NOT REPORT about this, YOUTUBE has gradually deleted all links of the video, EXCEPT for those posted by extremist groups. Hmmm.

Aneristic Illusions / OBAMA bans British teen from the U.S. for life

http://www.dallasblog.com/201009131007064/dallas-blog/obama-bans-british-teen-from-u.s.-over-drunk-email.html

          The Sun reports that, “a Brit teen who sent an email to the White House calling President Obama a ‘p***k’ has been banned from America for life.”

President Obama ordered the FBI to inform local cops that the college student Luke Angel, 17, wrote an “unacceptable” drunken insult to the commander in chief. Mr. Angel confessed to firing off a single email castigating the U.S. government after watching a TV program about 9/11.

Mr. Angel said, “I don’t remember exactly what I wrote as I was drunk. But I think I called Barack Obama a p***k. it was silly – the sort of thing you do when you’re a teenager and have had a few.”


IS THIS

          for real? Britspags? anyone? Buehler?

The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / RE: PEEVES
« on: October 02, 2010, 03:19:35 am »
DEAR P.D,

          i'd like to apologize for the direction which my posts took in regards to the "NIGEL-peeves" thread as well as the "HAWK is an asshole" thread.
          my initial response to this stuff was earnest.
          then, when the threads continued on, i got irritated.
          NIGEL is a friend of mine. a really good friend. we've seen each other deal with what i'd like to believe, were the worst times of our lives. and however strangely we did it, we have been there for each other.
          CHARLIE BROWN is someone that i've watched come on to the P.D. BOARD (i don't post as much as i just stop by and read) and being who he is, he has really grown on me. i don't know this guy CHARLIE, but i just like him.
          long story short, watching the two go back and forth started to twist something in me.
          in the 'process' of responding to these threads, i just got fucking unhinged.
          i know better, but i let the bullshit get to me and i kinda lost it.

IT HIT ME

          like a ton of donkey shit when i saw ALTY's response.
          i just went out of line and by too much.

ALTY,

          i'm sorry that i caused you to need to say to me, "WTF?!" - ALTY has always been supportive to me, here. and shit, ALTY, you're probably the nicest person i've never met, you're just sincere and cute as a fucking button.

ECH,

          - the n00b thing gets under my skin, always has. i respect the work it takes to maintain this place, you're a really, really interesting person. the one time we had a chance to hang out, i really enjoyed. you did create a weird pause within me at one moment where you stated your, sort of, opinion about board participation which made me wonder if you think it's o.k. for ME, a non-old-schooler, to be present on the board. i've watched you have posting fits here, about identity and rank, which i can sort of get, but i don't necessarily agree with. in my opinion, regardless of who pays the bills or whatever, this board belongs to ROGER/ DOK HOWL, because there just is fucking nobody who weighs in on all aspects of the board with such depth and consistency. you can punch me next time you see me, if you want, but then you have to buy me a shot of well.

CHARLIE BROWN

          certainly does not need me to back him up or speak for him. i'm sure while i'd be flapping my lips CHARLIE would have already leveled the room with a few quick round-houses.

THAT SAID,

          i nominate this as the P.D. official theme song/ youtube video
