What a movie. Very powerful. Amazing TRUE, HISTORICAL movie as to a sad and sorry chapter in the history of the U.S. — and it was just 60 years ago!

What is scary and sobering is that it could EASILY happen again.

Thousands of people, from all walks, across the country, suffered. They were Blacklisted.

Definitely worth watching. We can learn from history.

Think – Today: When Did Today’s Playing Cards (Deck Of Cards) Make An Appearance?

by Anura Guruge


deck-of-cardsWe are all familiar with them. Most houses typically have at least one deck of cards lying around. So, when did playing cards, we we know of them now. make an appearance? Was it a very long time ago or was it more recent?

Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.

Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Name Of The Donkey In The Nativity Of Jesus” — only two of the synoptic gospels talk about the nativity, these being Luke and Matthew. Neither mention a donkey, either in the manger or as having been ridden by Mary on the long, arduous trip. That trip on a donkey is only mentioned in the ‘Gospel of James‘, an apocryphal Gospel. But, there is no name mentioned. ‘Nestor’, the donkey, was a 1977 Hollywood creation.
