Don't you think that people do have some sort of common sense in the 21st Century?? Not surprisingly, it happened in CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.!!
Finally the offensive Halloween display outside of a Fort Campbell home has been removed.

"The display appeared to show an African-American family hanging from a tree outside of an on-post residence on Litwin Street.

The child in the display had a knife in its back."

Officials said the resident willingly removed the decorations after being informed of concerns raised by the community.

On the other hand, students of my yesterday sociology classes voiced their stand and critiqued on the two-party system (I added up the dubious "winner takes all 'tradition' ", voting right suppression, and the gerrymandering practices...etc.), in particular, the issue of choice between the "lesser nice" !

Crystal Huang It was kind of interesting that Amy Poehler thought her Educator- parents were blue collar working-class people!!
Perhaps, in Massachusetts, the educational profession is categorized as working class-blue collar job???
Indeed, Educators tend not to get rich as the Big people in the business, politics, military-complex and industries.
In many Far-eastern cultures, being an educator is deemed as pretty decent white-collar, middle class occupation/profession, due to the rich cultural capitals and social status, which cannot be calculated or converted into the monetary terms.

Oct 27 (M), 2014. A Song of Reminiscence - A Melancholic Colonial-Romance: 安平追想曲



" Anping recollected song 安平追想曲 "(Taiwan Luo : An-pîng Tui-sióng-khik) was composed ​​by Xu Sher and written by the famous Taiwanese lyricist Chen Daru in 1951.

The song describes a sorrowful love story of a comprador businessmen's daughter in Taiwan.
She and a Dutch physician gave birth to a blonde in Anping, Tainan, a major city of the south part of Taiwan during the Dutch-colonial period of time in the 17th century.

The blonde grew up encountering with the similar fate of her mother, betrayed by her lover- another foreigner.

There are two time-frames regarding the origin of Anping recollected song: One is during  the 17th century, the Dutch colonial period in Taiwan. The other one is based on a 19th century's legend.

The inter-racial, inter-ethnic love affairs and the offspring they brought to this world during the traditionally colonial society was unusual and caused controversies and pains to the protagonists of the weak.


安平追想曲  Anping recollected song  (離別的叮)  

Lyricist
:陳達儒
Composer
:許石

身穿花紅長洋裝 風吹金髮思情郎
想郎船何往 音信全無通 伊是行船遇風浪
放我情難忘 我的心情無地講
相思寄著海邊風 海風無情笑我憨
...不知初戀心茫茫...

相思情郎想自己 不知爹親二十年
思念想欲見 只有金十字 乎我母親左遺記
放我私生兒 我聽母初講起 愈想不幸愈悲哀
到底現在生或死 啊...伊是荷蘭的船醫...

想起母子的命運 心肝想爹也怨爹
別人有爹疼 我是母親晟 今日青春孤單影
全望多情兄 望兄的船隻 早日回歸安平城
安平純情金小姐 啊...等你入港銅鑼聲

Pop quiz for tonight:
Why are the local stations (often time, Radios) pre-occupied with the Sport news (from details to trivias, repeated hours and hours...), religious messages (more hours..), entertaining/consumption activities (tons of hours), with some Ideologues' ranting (endlessly) ?

No any other FUN things available?? - one of the biggest "epidemiologies, or E-Ebola" caused by radios, TVs and the rest of mass communications (surly, tons of alternative social media sites too) !???

Have you cast your precious vote yet??
How much you care? What are your concerns?
Better job and Working condition - for the Bedrock of Society, or to widen the socio-economic gap?
Better Education - for the majority or the privileged few?
Better Health care availability- for the general hard-working people, or the rich and the powerful?
Better Environmental Protection - for the excessively profiteering interest groups, or for the rest of the sentient beings?
Better Protection for Children, Women and the rest of sentient beings, or supporting the invisible econo-Politi-Religious Domination?

Crystal Huang First of All, to Enjoy this nice Halloween Story, WE Need to know who "old Levin child Lau Lai-Tz" is The legend goes this way:. Old Levin child 's parents lived very long as nonagenarians (around 450 BC) One of the Reasons THEY lived so Long Could be the function of the "Filial Piety filial" which was a strong family value reinforced by various types of socialization processes.

old Levin son taking care of his parents with all his heart, even though in his 70s. According to the existing literature's' depiction, he never used the word "old" in front of his parents. In many occasions, he dressed himself up with cute-baby clothings, fumbling with funny baby toys, and acting escapade and silliness just like a little kid to please the old parents (forgetting the social and Biological clocks !!) 

My dear Colleague Mr. Joseph Baxter, one of Our School's campus- beauticians / custodians, he does not do the Same Things like old Levin child, but very close, so far as I know!
