March 26,2007 other half (the)

people who are rich and privileged. or, if one has money and privilege, it means those who are poor. The inaccuracy of this usage is that, in the United States, only about 7 percent of the population could be considered rich. or...one's spouse. Same use as btter half.

I told you about strawberry fields
You know the place where nothing is real
Well here's another place you can go
Where everything flows
Looking through the bent backed tulips
To see how the other half live
Looking through a glass onion



Oh, my bad
this isn't musical word
LOL

March 27,2007 Dutsche, Rudi; "Red Rud"i or "Rudi the Red."

a young German revolutionary member of the Socialist German Student Organization (SDS), he led a student rebellion againist the West German government in 1967 and 1968, based on the free-speech movement in America.

I have never heard of the Rudi Guy. Another 'new to me' issue.

News to me, too. Attempted to find info via google and it's pretty sparse.

I learned about him in world history in high school.

Taken fron Wikipedia:

Rudi Dutschke born Alfred Willi Rudi Dutschke (March 7, 1940 – December 24, 1979, Ĺrhus, Denmark) was the most prominent spokesperson of the left-wing German student movement of the 1960s. Later he was one of the founding members of the Green Party of Germany.

In 1968, he survived an assassination attempt by a right-wing extremist, living for another twelve years until related health problems caused his death.

The public assessment of Rudi Dutschke's political activities has undergone several changes, from the very aggressive condemnation by the Springer Press in the 1960s to a broad recognition today that the movement for which Dutschke was a leading spokesperson played an essential role in the democratization of German institutions in the post-World War II period.

Rudi Guy? Isn't he a bluesman?

No, the first Rudi I could think of was fashion designer Rudi Geinrich, who designed the topless bathing suit. And checking, I see his last name is actually Gernreich. (He'll be a calendar entry later, no doubt. You read it here first! )

As for Rudi the Red: There's this guy:
quote:
Prior to the breakup of the Soviet Union, my wife and I had an opportunity to visit Moscow. It is a beautiful city with friendly people, all eager to help us enjoy our visit, including Rudolph Karnekov, the personal guide assigned to us by the concierge of our hotel. Moscow-born and -bred and a former member of the Politburo, Rudy was very knowledgeable about the city and every aspect of Russian life, as well. We spent every moment possible out exploring the city, despite the often unpredictable Moscow weather.

One day, as we prepared to leave the hotel for a visit to a winery on the outskirts of Moscow, it began to rain, sleet, and snow. I, at least, was sure it was snow. My wife was equally sure it was rain, and insisted upon a visit to a local department store, to purchase an umbrella. I thought the shopping spree was a waste of time--who needed an umbrella for a little snow? (Besides, I really wanted to get to that winery!)

Well, a lengthy argument ensued, which threatened to ruin the day's excursion, until my wife suggested we defer to someone whose judgment about local weather conditions was sure to be above reproach--namely, our Muscovite guide. "After all," my wife insisted, "Rudolph, the Red, knows rain, dear!"

I've heard several variations on that (and told a couple) at several Christmases and other occasions.

I do remember "Rudi the Red" Dutschke because his name always reminded me of the Christmas song, of course. Also, you might see his name sometimes in association with the German Greens, like cupofjo's Wikipedia excerpt mentions.

But that, Dutschke O'Neill, is about it.

March 29,2007 Dirty

guilty. As oppsosed to clean. Related to Pontius Pilate's dirty hands, which he washed to cleanse himself of guilt in Christ's crucifixion. Example:"Obviously he's dirty; you don't think he could be clean and be that rich!"


Class warfare continued on the Hippie Calendar Word of the Day. It's not the 60's anymore.

But Otie, the internet is preventing me from "getting out more"!

Thanks, Otie and Dutch. This internet deal--I think it's here to stay. It does keep me from getting out and hitting the libraries like I used to.

March 28,2007 March on washington (for jobs and Freedom)

March 28,1963, gatrhering of more than 200,00 acticists at the Lincoln Memorial.
My father and two of his brothers planned to go to this. They were all in their 40s and living within 100 miles of Chicago, where they had all grown up (us 90 miles NW, Uncle Paul 40 miles SW, and Uncle Norman still in Chicago). Something came up for Uncle Paul, so they got his teen son, Mark, to go with them instead (I was too young and ba-a-arely remember my father going; at least I think I remember the actual trip and not subsequent reminiscences ).



Not sure how the Nelson men got to D.C., but I don't believe it was by dirigible; Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool, extending almost to Washington Monument, just "above" the Akron.

Five weeks ago I saw Cousin Mark at a shindig for his mother's 90th b-day (actually several activities spread over a Saturday and Sunday). On Sunday afternoon Mark told me that at the coffee hour reception between church services that morning, my mom and he had just been talking about the March on Washington. As Mom's husband, Carl, declines further into Alzheimer's, she's been getting more and more lonesome for my father, who died in 1985. She was telling Mark she was sorta collecting personal stories about my father, so they got talking about the March on Washington trip, since it was the most significant thing Mark and my dad did together.

So, Mark and I started talking about being there, too. Whereas my mom was most interested in anecdotes that would illuminate personality traits of my father, I found myself asking Mark more about the geography and the timing of things:
* the speakers' podium on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial
* how far the Reflecting Pool is from that ("Lincoln man" me didn't even go to either exact site the last two times I was in D.C., though both times I was all over the Mall from the Capitol to the Washington Monument!)
* where they were standing: near the left [south] edge of the pool, a relatively short way down its very long length)
* MLK and the other speakers looked tiny, but Mark could see them move as they spoke



I sorta picture the Nelson men's position as about here or a little closer; I didn't realize the trees were so thick and close in on the sides.

My mom wanted to put herself in Mark's place so she could feel like she was with my dad. I, on the other hand, was getting Mark to fill in setting details so I could get a spatial sense of things: standing in the sun near the left edge of the Reflecting Pool, hundreds of thousands of people all around, the steps of the Lincoln Memorial filled with speakers and VIPs, the giant statue of seated Lincoln in the shadows behind them.

.



The Nelson men would be about "behind" King's hand.

Well, not much of a "full story":
