A Freed Slave’s Letter to His Former Master

January 9, 2018 | 2 Comments » | Topics: History |

P. H. Anderson, a planter, wrote his former slave, Jourdon Anderson, who had previously served as a driver or an overseer and escaped during the war, to offer him employment after the war. P. H. Anderson, deep in debt, hoped that his former slave would help to bring in the harvest and convince other former slaves to return and thereby save the plantation. This document presents Jordan Anderson’s reply, dated August 7, 1865. Jourdon Anderson did not return, and P. H. Anderson ultimately lost the plantation.

 

Dayton, Ohio, 

August 7, 1865

To My Old Master, Colonel P.H. Anderson, Big Spring, Tennessee

Sir: I got your letter, and was glad to find that you had not forgotten Jourdon, and that you wanted me to come back and live with you again, promising to do better for me than anybody else can. I have often felt uneasy about you. I thought the Yankees would have hung you long before this, for harboring Rebs they found at your house. I suppose they never heard about your going to Colonel Martin’s to kill the Union soldier that was left by his company in their stable. Although you shot at me twice before I left you, I did not want to hear of your being hurt, and am glad you are still living. It would do me good to go back to the dear old home again, and see Miss Mary and Miss Martha and Allen, Esther, Green, and Lee. Give my love to them all, and tell them I hope we will meet in the better world, if not in this. I would have gone back to see you all when I was working in the Nashville Hospital, but one of the neighbors told me that Henry intended to shoot me if he ever got a chance.

The Happiest Prisoner On Death Row

January 9, 2018 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Story |

Joe Arridy’s parents knew something was different about their son from a young age. Born on April 29, 1915 in Pueblo, Colorado, Joe had great difficulty in school and couldn’t understand a number of basic concepts. By the time he reached his late teens, he was admitted to Colorado State Home for Mental Defectives in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Because he had an IQ of just 46, the other boys at the mental home would often take advantage of him—and even beat him. Though they were troublemakers, he didn’t know better when he joined a few of them one day as they hopped a train that was passing by the home. They traveled for 24 hours all the way back to Pueblo.

Unfortunately, Joe would have no way of knowing about an incident that had shaken his hometown that same week. There’d been an attack on two teenage girls in their own home, in which someone raped and murdered a 15-year-old girl named Dorothy Drain with a hatchet. Her 12-year-old sister, Barbara, miraculously survived. Understandably, everyone in Pueblo was on edge, and they were hunting for the “perverted maniac” responsible. Sadly, this news didn’t bode well for Joe…

While the other boys from the mental home had returned from their train adventure, Joe ended up traveling alone all the way to Cheyenne, Wyoming—roughly 200 miles away from Pueblo. There, police found him and brought him in to Sheriff George Carroll, who suspected that Joe might be connected to the crimes in Pueblo. Following hours of interrogation, Joe ended up confessing to the attacks.

The Story Of Hisashi Ouchi, A Victim of Fatal Radiation Kept Alive for 83 Days Against His Will

January 9, 2018 | 4 Comments » | Topics: Story, WTF |

Hisashi Ouchi was one of the technicians working at a facility operated by JCO (formerly Japanese Nuclear Fuel Conversion Co.) in Tokai of Ibaraki Perfecture. He is one of the two fatalities of Tokaimura nuclear accident that exposed him to, perhaps, the highest amount of radiation any human had exposed so far. The ethical value of his prolonged treatment and efforts to keep him alive, that lasted for almost three months despite his wishes and the pain he had to endure, was questioned and the efforts received criticism.

The accident occurred on September 30, 1999, when Hisashi Ouchi and two of his colleagues added a seventh bucket of aqueous uranyl nitrate solution to a precipitation tank. Upon adding, the tank reached critical stage and went into a self-sustaining nuclear fission chain reaction releasing intense gamma and neutron radiation. 

During the accident, Ouchi was exposed to 17 sieverts of radiation with 8 sieverts being normally considered fatal and 50milli sieverts being the maximum limit of annual dose allowed for Japanese nuclear workers.

The Daily Man-Up

January 9, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up |

It is the norm to waste large portions of one’s time.

Most people have very low standards for how they use their time.

They don’t have clarity about where they should direct their attention.

They haven’t created conditions to get clear on a daily basis.

They don’t believe they deserve to spend their time on ONLY those things which fascinate, challenge, and motivate them.

They haven’t discovered nor clarified their deepest held motivations, both for specific goals and for their life in general.

They act and operate from their base-level reasons, which aren’t inspiring.

Hence, most people’s time is spent either on stuff that literally irritates them, or at best, is merely “okay.”

When you spend most of your time doing activities that irritate you, or are just okay, how do you think you come-off to the rest of the world?

Irritated and bored?

Lacking clarity and purpose?

Disconnected and distracted?
