This story about an alternate history of World War III is fun, "In Collier's Magazine, World War already Happened - in 1952." It captures the gestalt of the early Cold War.

Constitution Day tends to bring out stories about how much, or little, Americans know about the Constitution. This is one of those stories, "Americans know surprisingly little about their government, survey finds."

St. Bonaventure was the right choice for me because of the community atmosphere and size. I was drawn by how caring everyone treats each other and by the reassurance that I would get to know my professors on a better level than at a large school. Coming from a small high school, it was an easier transition knowing that there was not a large number of students per class. Also, the beauty of the campus and the pride of being a Bonnie were hard to miss out on. I have never heard a single negative comment about the school; I knew something had to be special.

I'm doing some preparation to for class, particularly teaching Jules Verne's Paris in the Twentieth Century, and this led me to look at other how others have thought about the future and technology at the 1964 World's Fair. Above is a report on what a visitor to the fair could expect. If you have the time, and don't mind getting sucked in, there is a Youtube channel for the Fair. I have to say, I'm in the group wanting to know why we don't have jet packs. You can also check out "Recalling a Vision of the Future" at the New York Times.
