Tales from the Collective Unconscious

This is a menagerie of images, interesting or beautiful, collected from the distributed dregs of human thought.

My own writings, photos and reflections can be found on my Photo of the Day blog.

They were obliged to camp out that night under a large tree in the forest, for there were no houses near.  The tree made a good, thick covering to protect them from the dew, and the Tin Woodman chopped a great pile of wood with his axe and Dorothy built a splendid fire that warmed her and made her feel less lonely.  She and Toto ate the last of their bread, and now she did not know what they would do for breakfast.
Going waayyy back to the chapter illustration I skipped a while ago, chapter 7. Color here is a little more naturalistic than I’ve been tending to do for this project, but I’m very happy with it!
I love CAMPING!

I put my library on shuffle and the first song was from the Naruto soundtrack. This is why I don’t put my library on shuffle. Not too bad overall, though!

I’m not tagging anyone because otherwise there will be no end to the thing, but you can do it if you like.

In the post-World War II era, the Klan experienced a huge resurgence. Its membership was skyrocketing, and its political influence was increasing, so Kennedy went undercover to infiltrate the group. By regularly attending meetings, he became privy to the organization’s secrets. But when he took the information to local authorities, they had little interest in using it. The Klan had become so powerful and intimidating that police were hesitant to build a case against them.

Struggling to make use of his findings, Kennedy approached the writers of the Superman radio serial. It was perfect timing. With the war over and the Nazis no longer a threat, the producers were looking for a new villain for Superman to fight. The KKK was a great fit for the role.

In a 16-episode series titled “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” the writers pitted the Man of Steel against the men in white hoods. As the storyline progressed, the shows exposed many of the KKK’s most guarded secrets. By revealing everything from code words to rituals, the program completely stripped the Klan of its mystique. Within two weeks of the broadcast, KKK recruitment was down to zero. And by 1948, people were showing up to Klan rallies just to mock them.
