    A country survives if all people subscribe to a unifying myth. I just heard they put a shroud over Thomas Jefferson.

    This bodes poorly for our continued survival.

    The good old days are going to mean something to more than just the elderly.

    Think it would be worth the time to make an interactive map? Cursor over a building location and see a group of photo's of that spot?

    Example.... Click over the stadium location which would link to: https://panam1901.org/farm_implement...nts_design.htm




    cursor over Ethnology Building and see this...





    Incredible what was here in the past. Self serving politics is a horrible issue to have in a community.

    Billy B Van "The Devils Daughter" 1901 Buffalo NY

    Billy B. Van (August 3, 1878 – November 16, 1950) was a prominent entertainer in the early decades of the 1900s. He was a star, progressively, in minstrel shows, vaudeville, burlesque, the New York stage, and movies. At the same time under another name he was a well-known dairy farmer and agriculturist. And, at the same time he was a manufacturer of soap products. And later in his career he reinvented himself as a nationally known motivational speaker, and a Yankee goodwill ambassador.
