A look back at the underreported events that shaped American history.
I love documentaries. I watch them to unwind, even though sometimes they wind me up. I caught something on my Twitter feed about Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States.
I am a recovering racist and I have several friends from the USA who help me come to terms with my prejudice. In conversations with them and through being a witness to their attempts to live lives of justice and compassion, I am challenged to hold my judgmental fire and try to understand. It helps to try and discern, rather than jumping to conclusions all the time. You’d think I will get this sooner or later.
I checked out the documentary and am finding it inspiring, disturbing, informative, provocative and fascinating. If you get a chance, see if you can catch an episode or 10 (there’s only 10 in the series).

Thanks to Scotty for spotting this one. Truly awesome on so many levels.
So after about 2 years on Posterous, they are finally shutting down after being purchased by Twitter. As of today, I will be using Tumblr as my blog hosting facility.
It came down to Tumblr and Blogger. I chose Tumblr because the Blogger Android app was positively archaic by comparison. Let’s see how things go.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you find anything missing from this blog (as a result of the transfer) please let me know asap and I will have a look to see what went wrong in the conversion process.
