Links for Tuesday, 2 April

"I intend to do what little one man can do to awaken the public conscience, and in the meantime I am not frightened by your menaces. I am not a giant physically; I shrink from pain and filth and vermin and foul air, like any other man of refinement; also, I freely admit, when I see a line of a hundred policeman with drawn revolvers flung across a street to keep anyone from coming onto private property to hear my feeble voice, I am somewhat disturbed in my nerves.

But I have a conscience and a religious faith, and I know that our liberties were not won without suffering, and may be lost again through our cowardice. I intend to do my duty to my country."

Upton Sinclair, Letter to the Los Angeles Chief of Police, 17 May 1923

You may check back on occasion as I sometimes add things during the day. I will put those additions at the top of the list.

I am pleased to report that the "Links List" function in Google's Blogger is now repaired.  I will return to using that format tomorrow.
