* Wednesday, July 10, 1963: 'The Situation in South Vietnam' - From Special National Intelligence Estimate 53-2-63 (prepared by CIA and U.S. military).

* Amtrak Salutes Veterans (with video):

Last month, Amtrak revealed a paint scheme commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. The red, white and blue paint scheme was applied to P42 No. 42 at the railroad’s Beech Grove, Indiana shops.
Coinciding with the revealing of the “Veterans Unit,” Amtrak president Joe Boardman announced his railroad’s goal of having 25 percent of its new hires to be veterans by 2015.

Thank you for pointing that out, David, especially that last part.

* White deer in Sangamon County (with video). Wow!

* Bartlett: "... in April 1971, the Illinois Crime Commission released a list of songs it found to be 'drug-oriented.'"

* Hole.

* Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea (A song from 1963 that the Illinois Crime Commission was still worried about in 1971.)
