It’s time for a change
To the Editor:
I am writing about the racial discrimination suit against Honda.
Greensburg has had a reputation of racial bias since before I was born back in the 1920s. I heard tales of this since I was a kid.
I worked with a lot of African Americans at Cummins. We all played ball together. They were from Shelbyville, North Vernon, Columbus, Seymour and Franklin. They all played high school ball in the ‘50s and ‘60s and they made the comment that they were always a little nervous when they had to play at Greensburg because of our reputation.
People like to harass people because they think they are above them. What they don’t realize is that they put themselves below the people they are harassing. I don’t know how the lawsuit will come out, but I do know it’s time for us all to look at our priorities and end this. We are all people.
Millions snapped, but few saved
In these days of incessant picture taking, where everybody with a “smart” phone has suddenly become a “photographer,” I’m concerned that in the not-very-distant future nobody will actually have a photo record of their family.
Marilyn and I have countless big fat photo albums, covering the entire gamut of people and events that have been or are important in our lives. It’s always interesting to sit on the couch and leaf through these albums – those trips down Memory Lane are really sweet--sometimes bittersweet--and those photos are irreplaceable.
I pose this question: Of the millions of photos being snapped daily using modern electronics, how many will actually be printed? I’d guess almost none of them. (Note: I now used electronic cameras, but I make actual photo prints.)
