Those ones I know
This is not a bad thing.
I wish that I couldn’t name any member of that family.
Television is educational!
So what? They’ve been able to vote since 1920.
What’s so special about this year?
Well, I’m here.
Here’s the grave… or at least as best I can manage with the people around it.
And here’s part of the line.
Awesome! Thanks for going and taking pictures for us!
I’m not arguing against it. I just want to know if the caretakers of the cemetery are taking any measures to protect the stone from the accelerated erosion that I suspect would happen from removing the stickers.
It will undoubtedly take a whole lot of beak-sharpenings to wear it down to nothing, but if they can foresee damage from the stickers and protect against it, I don’t think that prevents the stone’s interaction with history, and it preserves the original monument to the love of someone now lost, which has its own significance.
First year a woman was a major party nominee for President. It only took 96 years, although the first woman on a major party ticket was Geraldine Ferraro in 1984. The first woman to receive an electoral vote was Tonie Nathan, the Libertarian VP nominee in 1972, who was also the first Jewish person to receive an electoral vote . That same year, Shirley Chisholm was the first woman and the first African-American to run for President as a major party candidate.
Nah, can’t be all that… /s
Maybe people do it every year, it just got on the radar.
You may have notice it, but despite wearing pants and having short hair, Hillary is a woman.
some people do it every two years…but I don’t think the crowds are normally this bad.
Also… the trees are pretty! I love fall.
I asked, and, yes, they’ve spent the last week preparing the headstone; apparently it’s a yearly tradition that has three orders of magnitude more adherents this year. So they’ve dealt with it before and know how to maintain the stone.
Will be making separate post with pictures in a minute.
