>1. A Bessemer Improvement

For months (meaning years) we have waited for this to be cleaned up.

Now it looks like this.

Before you know it, a building will rise and this part of downtown will be reborn. Cleaning was delayed due to environmental concerns. The Public Building Authority has seen preliminary drawings. Nice.

2. Bonnie and Clyde

Did you know that it was 75 years ago this week that the two were ambushed and killed. In honor the FBI released new information and photos. Since I am on their favs list, I got them.

Not quite Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, huh?

Here’s Bonnie Parker, wanted.


Here’s Clyde posing by a road sign.


Here’s a crowd gathering around the car after the ambush. Crime does not pay.

Go here for more.

3. History of Stonewall by Varla Jean

Speaking of anniversaries, this summer marks the 40th anniversary of Stonewall. I will be in NYC to celebrate!
