A couple things i find interesting



I think that's just great.

Next is this: http://strangemaps.wordpress.com/2008/11/15/330-from-pickin-cotton-to-pickin-presidents/

I love looking at this and seeing how history connects with the present in various ways. I love seeing the graphical representation of how cotton farming and slavery over 150 years ago are still affecting our world in the present. To be completely honest I really didn't know that there were still enough African American people in the rural regions of these states to dramatically swing the vote for Mr Obama.

And in a strange sort of way this shows that a dark place in our history can actually have a positive affect now.

And this is why i love these things.

Have a lovely day,

David "Inky" Schwartz
