Hello, I’ve worked in public “contract” archaeology for many years as an archaeological technician and would like to voice my concern over this permit application: St. Louis District Corps Permit application: P2476.
For many years working in New York City I have worked with various students in the field of archaeology and as you might imagine from a wide varied experience. The Cahokia Mounds are one of the major archaeology wonders (and ongoing New York University field-school in archaeology, or was) in North America, which I would hear new aspects discovered regularly (maybe examples of MesoAmerican trade, new structures in a former “pig farm” area, large log palisades, updated larger population estimates, etc.) that help explain the history of a part of our country and its natives past organization, a past unknown to European nations when they arrived.
I imagine, former President and General Ulysses S. Grant, who is interred in New York City with his wife, a native of that area of Missouri, might want a better consideration for his origin and its influence on him and other Americans, like myself who grew up on Long Island with a Missourian’s sons in Centereach, NY deserving better than a garbage dump next to what is part of the people who have inspired the formation of our democracy, as cited by Benjamin Franklin and others.

Before NYU tore down the “Palladium” venue on 14th Street in NYC to put up more dormitories (today in stark contrast its student body is from out of town), there was a tribute to Abbie Hoffman who had died recently. Much was made of the “small collection” of drugs in his freezer, souvenirs of the past.
In the book “Three Men With Unlimited Capital” after the NY Times ad placed that started the Woodstock Music and Art Fair that came to Max Yasgur’s farm instead of Walkill, NY which I attended, its alleged that Abbie wanted to be paid not to show up and disrupt the concert with political “street” theater. I’ve been wondering about the 10gs was it? I found the book in bin in a Long Island “A&P” supermarket who were once chased out of NYC having an alleged “racial” practices. In it it’s also alleged Abbie used to play poker regularly with the NYC police and many were undercover at the Woodstock Festival.
I had been to Woodstock, the town, not the fair the summer before, washing dishes in Timber Lake Camp, near Phoenicia, where I think I saw Jimi Hendrix in a sidewalk cafe and a friend says his mother starting then in real estate was showing a house and Jimi and a either her or “Janice Joplin look alike” were there they had been thinking they weren’t going to be disturbed. Bob Dylan and The Band were up there too that summer as “Big Pink”.
I wonder if Abbie helped tear the fence down I watched standing there with my ticket.
William Kunstler once defended a Blackfoot hospital personnel director whose daughter’s paper in English class was marked “I have an uncle who is a Wampanoag who says the Indians got what they deserved” referring to the people who first met the Pilgrims. She (Baum) said it was a racist comment provided by the woman teacher (Duarte). She who sued the school district had recently been in an auto accident and confined to a wheelchair and later retired to the reservation. I think they were trying to take her daughters away, the one with the paper recently on the reservation learning of her roots. I was glad William Kunstler was involved.

Why don’t they put the pxxxography in the area where at least one could point a finger at it? As it is now, it’s part of the “collective conscious” of people using the world wide web and needs to be somewhere appropriate. If it were maybe the day to day assaults on network security might lower as a hypothetical. Is there any “entrapment” safeguards in place here? Yet I’ve heard insistently that the “pxxx” (which you can’t spell in title or message in Windows “Live Spaces” without being popped up objectionally even if you are discussing it as herein) is the money maker that made the Internet. It took the United Nations to wrest away “JethroTull.com” from an alleged teenager who wanted $5000 for it. Some lines should be drawn for our own safety.

1964: Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb makes its U.S. premiere.
Rants and Raves: Maybe overlooked? Mr. Kubrick pitched the film as a “comedy” which it’s always listed as and the ending is left out? The pie fight? Hmmm… It becomes without it an anti-nuclear war film instead, and we all will meet again someday…light is faster than sound. James Earl Jones became the voice of Darth Vader.
The Russian minister did get his photo of the Big Board…

Comment: Working in Nissequogue, NY on Long Island, NY I met the grandson of one of the constitutional scholars who helped draft the Japanese constitution after World War II. I was struck by the amount of time, sitting there in their little house’s servants kitchen, that is time that has passed and that constitution still unamendable, and how different national relations are as this wonderful interview shows.
