LESCHI, A NISQUALLY AMERICAN INDIAN
February 19, 0 - USA
Feb 19, Leschi, a Nisqually American Indian leader from the Puget Sound region, was hanged a mile east of Fort Steilacoom. On June 10, 1857, he had been convicted of the murder of Abrams Moses, and was sentenced to hang. Appeals to the Supreme Court delayed the initial hanging. In 2004 seven judges at a Historical Court of Inquiry and Justice unanimously decided that regardless of who shot Moses, â€œThe killing was a legitimate act of war, immune from prosecution.â€ Consequently, Leschi was declared â€œexoneratedâ€ of Abrams Mosesâ€™ murder. In 2011 Richard Kluger authored â€œThe Bitter Waters of Medicine Creek: A Tragic Clash Between White and Native America.â€

A Change is Gonna Come
by Meredith Grey
"...Change; we don't like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn't is lying. But here's the truth: Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything...."

The White House
about Valerie Jarrett
The White House has been on the defensive recently over its claim, repeated numerous times over the years, that under President Barack Obama's health care law, if you like your health plan, you can keep it.
White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett tweeted that "nothing in Obamacare forces people out of their health plans." We checked to see if that's right.
The Earth is the only place
about Earth Day
The Earth is the only place in the entire Universe where we know that life exists. But that won'at be true forever. To us, our Earth seems huge, solid, tailor-made for us, and permanent. But that is just one perspective, born of living on its surface. From a different perspective, none of those things is true. Seen from space, it looks much less unbreakable. Seen from deep space, it shrinks to nothing more than a dot, barely visible in the reflected light of the Sun. From another star, even seeing our planet at all would be a colossal task. We are, after a monumental effort spanning decades, only just now finding other planets orbiting other stars. Are any like Earth? Almost certainly, and in fact there may be billions of planets like ours orbiting alien stars. But while they are like ours, they arena't ours. As with any individual, our world is unique, and precious, and wonderful. Leta's keep it that way.
