Day 10/67: Five Month GED, More Salty Evidence, and Librarians!

So, if salt is so important, then how would you find evidence that salt is important?   salt_field_worker   For that matter, how would you find evidence that the Crusades really happened?  Ask your favorite reference librarian, perhaps, at your local public library branch?  One of the key parts of our democracy, and of Phase I of Project Do Better is libraries, right?

  1. On a trip to England in the 1980s, we saw x marks in an old church, supposedly made by Crusaders before leaving on a Crusade. News from the Middle East reference the Crusader mentality of the US and Western Europe.

    1. No way!!
      Crusader “Jim was here” graffiti, and in a church, no less?! No wonder they knocked over Constantinople on the 4th: we come from a bunch of Vandals! (When did they knock over Rome, before or after the Goths, Visigoths, Huns…?)
