When the levees were broken from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 there was a town called Algiers Point that underwent tragic occurences . A militia of about 15 to 30 men and women took it upon themselves to use pick up trucks, shotguns, and family dogs to patrol the neighborhood. The militia targeted people who they thought were theives, outlaws, or as one member of the militia put it, "anyone who didn't belong". They blocked main roads that led into the town with trees that were pulled straight out of the ground from the storm. One member of the militia describes it as, "great." He continued saying, "It was like pheasant season in South Dakota. If it moved, you shot it." I'm sure you're thinking to yourself; how can something like this happen, but it did, and the scary part is that people actually enjoyed this horrific time at Algiers Point. Click here for more information on Algiers Point. I left a little video below so everyone can see it for themselves. It's pretty graphic so watch it at your own risk. I'm curious to hear what everyone has to say about this! Give me some feedback!
propaganda-noun- information that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause
Check out this film "Reefer Madness", it was a film created back in 1936. It was a film that talks about marijuana use, and the events that follow when high school students are lured into the tempataion of smoking marijuana. It talks about things that may happen, but are debated as highly unrealistic actions such as manslaughter, suicide, and rape. The film was directed by Louis Gasnier and had a cast of nobodies! The film was used back in the day for parents as a morality tale to teach them about the dangers of smoking marijuana. A perfect example of some propaganda for ya!

If you are outside at all today...LOOK UP AND LOOK FOR THE MOON! What may look like two bright stars behind the moon are actually planets. Yup...Tonight Monday December 1, 2008 Jupiter and Venus will aline with the moon tonight to form a spectacular sight. Tonight, from the naked eye the celestial objects will be as close as we'll ever see them until2052!You shouldn't be scared or anything; it's just an illusion of perspective. The moon is still 251,400 miles away.Venus is 93.2 million miles away, and Jupiter isn't remotely close to us at 540.3 million miles away! For those of you who will unfortunately miss the extravaganza tonight... I'll take pictures, and post them later on tonight. Gotta get back to class!
