Two bits about Time

- This is the cover of the Time magazine from August 8, 1960, which was on the shelves when I was born. Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara. How cool is that?

- The White House Memo in the August 7, 2006 edition of Time is about US Secretary Of State, Condoleezza Rice. Near the end the comment is made, “She worked on the National Security Council of President George H.W. Bush, and some Bush-family aides say Rice’s election as the first black and first woman U.S. President could be one of the clan’s greatest legacies.” Ordinarily I wouldn’t even think about this sort of thing but couldn’t the writers at Time (in this case a guy named Mike Allen) have chosen another word than ‘clan’ when speaking about a black person?

Anyway… Humouroceros
