BLACK DAYS FOR AMERICA

My April 3 blog concerned itself with The Americans. A group that considered women second class citizens. The group were leading male citizens. Under the guise of preventing the spread of venereal disease, a law was passed that made any woman viewed as suspicious by the police subject to arrest, incarceration, sometimes sterilization.
The law is still on the books in some states, though rarely enforced these days.
The law was/is known as the Chamberlain-Kahn Act.
Jasper Jottings is a weekly blog put out by F. John Reinke. His blog concerns Jaspers. Jaspers are Manhattan College graduates. Reinke graduated from Manhattan in the late 1960’s. I graduated from Manhattan in 1957. We have never met. Know each other however by our respective blogs.
Reinke refers to his blog as the Achievement Journal of My Fellow Jaspers,” Alumni of Manhattan College.
Reinke carried my April 3 article re Women Second Class Citizens. I appreciate it. Reinke ran the article in his publication dated April 14.
I want to thank John. It was nice of him to print it.

[JR: I have read Key West Lou since I found out he was a Jasper. His blog is interesting, despite being sometimes “politically left” and about living in “Sodom” — or maybe it’s “Gomorra”. Either way, as a little L libertarian, as long as I don’t have to pay for someone’s lifestyle or they insist on imposing their diktats on me, I really could care less about that part. I find it educational from time to time. If we all did more MYOBing, the world would be a much better place.]
