Today in Labor History September 28, 1919: Thousands of whites rampaged through Omaha, Nebraska, setting fire to the Courthouse, lynching Will Brown, a black civilian, and attempting to hang the reformist mayor. 2 whites died. It followed more than 20 race riots across the U.S. that summer. Several years earlier, ethnic Irish rioters drove the entire Greek community from Omaha. The African-American population of Omaha had doubled from 1910-1919. Many had been recruited to work as strike breakers in the stockyards, exacerbating the racism of white workers in town. Then a white woman falsely accused a black man of raping her. Will Brown was arrested, but the woman was unable to positively ID him. But the racist crowd didn’t buy it and lynched him anyway.

Growing up in Nebraska, we had a local supermarket called "Hinky Dinky" and the name was the most spectacular thing about the experience. Everything else was rather dull.
When I asked Midjourney to give me the Hinky Dinky of my childhood, this was the result. Not close to the original, but better -- and that's the real power of AI. You can enhance memory with false verification that places trauma in a manageable grave.
I had the pleasure of doing some work for the Department of Education's School Safety team earlier this year. This job is a wonderful opportunity for someone who has a passion for school safety and who wants to connect with educators all across #Nebraska. #LNK https://www.governmentjobs.com/careers/nebraska/jobs/4215296/school-safety-grants-specialist-program-specialist-ii
"Failing to pass funding bills that keep our federal government functioning isn’t just rhetoric — it puts the health and well-being of thousands of Nebraskans at risk. Congress should rally the long-standing bipartisan support of health centers to move this critical funding forward."

"In case you missed this story: a Nebraska mother was sentenced to two years in prison for providing abortion pills to her pregnant daughter. … This is the new America our Supreme Court has forced upon us, one in which Republican politicians loom over women in every aspect of their lives."

Jessica Burgess, a Nebraska mother accused of helping her teenage daughter use pills to end her pregnancy, was sentenced on Friday to two years in prison.

A mother in #Nebraska has been sentenced to 2 years in prison for providing #abortion pills to her 17 year old daughter. The daughter, now 19, has been sentenced to 90 days in jail and 2 years parole. It seems to me that providing her with a birth control implant would be more effective than parole, the threat of recidivism is nil. https://www.kmov.com/2023/09/22/mother-sentenced-giving-abortion-pills-pregnant-daughter-nebraska/

The top story in #theAtlantic is (yet again) Evangelical Christianity giving itself advice on how to reverse its decline.
The author writes from Lincoln, #Nebraska. My hometown, where the big news is that the son of the head pastor of a major conservative church (Christ Lincoln) posed as a teenager (he is 26) so he could attend highschool and have access to underage girls. He falsified a birth certificate and medical records to enroll.
Hi all! I'm saving up to move to #Nebraska, so I'm running a #fundraiser. I'm a #Vocaloid producer, so I'm taking #commissions on #Patreon so I can provide perks to those who donate. This is mainly a #fundraiser, just with a few benefits. My living situation is desperate, so every little bit helps. If you can't donate, that's OK too. Boosting this post will help me out a great deal. Thank you for your support. https://www.patreon.com/DanGero #Miku #HatsuneMiku #MutualAid
I collaborated over #Twitter with a friend in Nebraska on this t-shirt idea, then Raygun Shirts made it.
See uses her real name, now she is harassed on Twitter & at her work. It's esp bad now under #elonmusk.

archive.org is pretty cool. :) Code for Nebraska (#CodeforAmerica) has uploaded 53 issues of a newspaper published from 1987-1992. archive.org does all the searching, previewing, online reading, and 30 other features for each file. It even did OCR after I (silly me?) did the OCR myself. :)
