    much food for thought..especially so:

    The resuscitation of Hebrew as a living language is started in earnest with primary school Hebrew classes in Palestine
    And this:
    The Webb-Haney Alien Land-Holding Act passed by California legislature, forbidding Japanese and Filipinos in the state from owning land or leasing it for more than three years.
    Sorta wigs me out to realize that I devoured Baum's Oz series as a child in 1959-1960...nearly 40 years after they were written.  Heh, I vividly recall trekking from the library & settling in a fave mossy forest spot to read these books.  With moose & critters nearby.

    Around the same time frame I read a book about Jim Thorpe, who became my first "hero" & awakened a passion/understanding that was to become a lifelong pursuit.
