Thought for the day

"I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism are incapable of being conquered." -- Martin Luther King 

Here's a strange relic from the past: a 1979 calendar dedicated to cocaine. Yes, you read that right, for cocaine. While the substance was illegal, it was not considered so bad (and it was common in magazines to advertise cocaine gadgets). Each month's photo shows the coca plant at a different stage of its transition to cocaine powder, from its source in the Andes to its destination as a Christmas gift, and of course, users enjoying it. Months are accompanied by quotes about cocaine from various sources. A brief history of cocaine and a chronology of history from AD 900 to 1979 are also on the front. The calendar was published by Red Dog Productions in San Francisco. And, look at the font style of the calendar title... Does it sound familiar?
