    Images from American History, Part 23
    The Freedmen’s Bureau / Drawn by A.R. Waud. Illus. in: Harper’s weekly, 1868 July 25, p. 473. Hard to find something more self-serving than this given the Freedmen’s Bureau massive corruption and underfunding and, often, outright support of white violence to force the freed slaves back to work. There was at least a potential for a good agency here, but this image, this ain’t it.

    It tastes like Guinness
    Last night we were at Kroger and I saw an ad on a shopping cart for the no-alcohol Guinness. Advertising apparently works on me because I brought a 4-pack home, even though I had no intention of buying beer, with or without alcohol, when I entered the store. I've tried a couple of the newer no-alcohol beers, and although none of them were bad, none felt like something I would …
