Easter Sunday was also Youth Sunday. Moving and wonderful.
“Plantation” is a genteel euphemism for slave labor camp. Let’s change the history books to say so. Michael Todd Landis:
Why should we continue to employ wording that is biased, false, or laden with myth? Compromise, plantation, slave-owners, Union v. Confederacy, etc.: these phrases and many others obscure rather than illuminate; they serve the interests of traditionalists or white supremacists; they do not accurately reflect our current understanding of phenomena, thus they should be abandoned and replaced.
Our 16th anniversary is tomorrow. Right now we’re on the subway from LaGuardia to our hotel near Wall Street station.
We kick around for a few hours and tonight we take in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.
Tomorrow, we walk and picnic on the High Line and watch the Brooklyn Bridge fireworks.!
