Once upon a time, the man now known as Pope Benedict wanted to be the librarian for the Vatican. I don’t really know what to think about that.

Fifty years ago, the Seattle World’s Fair entranced thousands of visitors, and it’s still an example for cities today.

Twenty-five years ago, Chicago teachers went on strike, and I remember this because my aunt was one of them. Bill Lucey looks at the history of teacher strikes in America.

Meanwhile, in another dimension completely, all the presidents of the United States take each other on in a knife fight. Who would win? Bunny sent this to me and we think that Andrew Jackson and Theodore Roosevelt would make the final four at the very least, with Eisenhower and Lincoln possibly in the mix. We have not put much thought into what Nixon would do, however.
