    Behind-The-Scenes With Barack Obama And Producers Of Netflix’s Amazing New ‘Our Great National Parks’

    James Honeyborne:
    “I really looked forward to the commentary recording sessions. The President was great fun to work with and had done a very thorough preparation for each film. He clearly has a natural mastery of his voice, but I could see that he also put a lot into his delivery, so good that he quickly became a bit of a one-take wonder.”

    “Sophie Todd:
    “I first met the President when I was directing the shoot in Hawaii. While we were filming, he told me that part of the reason this place was so very special to him was that around the outcroppings, there is a lookout a mile down and that’s where his mother’s and grandmother’s ashes are scattered. Whenever he comes home to Hawaii, he goes there to pay them a visit and that when the waves wash up over the rocks he knows that they are greeting him. I didn’t expect him to share such a personal anecdote and the crew were moved by him sharing that with us.”

    The Money Line…Still, Congress in passing the law “felt itself confronted by an insidious & pervasive evil which had been perpetuated in certain parts of our country through unremitting & ingenious defiance of the Constitution,” he said, quoting South Carolina v. Katzenback, a 1966 SCOTUS ruling upholding the VRA.

    • April 14, 2022 at 8:43 am

      Take note of the year of the Scotus Ruling…1966…one year after the Voting Rights Act had been passed…….

      there has been a long trail to undermine the vote of black people…the sons and daughters of formerly enslaved people…

    Obama’s ‘historic’ conservation legacy beats Teddy Roosevelt
    By Charlie Northcott
    BBC News, Washington

    Jan 4 2017

    “Elephants, sharks, and toads have one thing in common. All of them have benefited, in some way, from the presidency of Barack Obama.

    One of the lesser known legacies of the US president is his record as a conservationist.
    During his eight years in office, he has placed 548 million acres of habitat under protection. This spans Arctic tundra, mountain woodland, and coral reefs with as much biodiversity as rainforests. The outgoing president created the two largest marine reserves on earth and the world’s second largest desert reserve.
    Collectively, this array of land and sea encompass an area nine times the size of the United Kingdom.
    Mr Obama has protected more natural habitat than any president in American history, exceeding the 290 million acres by the founder of US National Parks, President Theodore Roosevelt.

    In all, Mr Obama has added 22 new parks to the US National Park system, far exceeding the six created by his predecessor, George W Bush.”

    (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38311093)

    …..to those of us who remember every millisecond.

    The Role Of Shame In An Era Of Political Shamelessness

    Prof. Tressie McMillan Cottom joins Lawrence O’Donnell to discuss her new NYT column,
    ‘What’s Shame Got to Do With It?’ which dissects the issue of shame in an era of shamelessness in American politics. “Sometimes shame makes you do the right thing,” Cottom says, “and in public life our primary concern has to be doing the right thing.”

    Evgenia, wife of detained Russian opposition leader Vladimir Kara-Murza,
    discusses Russians who oppose the war in Ukraine.
    “The fact is, Mr. Putin did not become a murderous dictator overnight,” she tells Joy Reid.
    ”He has been oppressing, throwing in prison, poisoning, and killing his opponents for years and years.”

    Come Away Melinda

    by Uriah Heep

    Daddy, daddy, come and look
    See what I have found
    A little ways away from here
    While digging in the ground
    Come away, Melinda
    Come in and close the door
    It’s nothing, just a picture-book
    They had before the war
    Daddy, daddy, come and see
    Daddy, come and look
    Why there’s four or five
    Little Melinda girls
    Inside my picture book
    Come away, Melinda
    Come in and close the door
    There were lots of little girls like you
    Before they had the war
    Oh daddy, daddy, come and see
    Daddy, hurry do
    Why, there’s someone in a pretty dress
    She’s all grown up like you
    Won’t you tell me, why?
    Come away, Melinda
    Come in and close the door
    That someone is your mummy
    You had before the war
    Daddy, daddy, tell me if you can
    Why can’t things be
    The way they were
    Before the war began?
    Come away, Melinda
    Come in and close the door
    The answer lies in yesterday
    Before they had the war
