Obama's Secret Weapon In The South: Small, Dead, But Still Kickin' : Krulwich Wonders... : NPR
States in the Deep South traditionally vote Republican in every presidential election. However, a string of "blue" counties curve through Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. And the reason for this political anomaly seems to lie with ancient oceans and dead plankton.

Benjamin Franklin . Citizen Ben . Abolitionist | PBS
Franklin recognized that freed slaves could not fend for themselves without help, so he advanced the idea that slaves needed to be educated in order to become contributing members of a free society. In his position of president of the abolitionist society, Franklin wrote and published an "Address to the Public," in which he addressed the education of former slaves. The plan was to "instruct, to advise, to qualify those who have been restored to freedom, for the exercise and enjoyment of civil liberty; to promote in them habits of industry, to furnish them with employment suited to their age, sex, talents, and other circumstances. . . which we conceive will essentially promote the public good, and the happiness of these hitherto much neglected fellow-creatures."

The Slave Trade and British Capital Formation in the Eighteenth Century: A Comment on the Williams Thesis* | Business History Review | Cambridge Core
"Professor Engerman constructs estimates of relevant data in order to test the assertion that profits from the slave trade provided the capital which financed the Industrial Revolution in England."

--- The last tag is tentative, but La Historienne has convinced me to at least explore using the Williams Thesis as a teaching example in the new class...

Repossessed by bootson
Gabe's property is illegally seized, and there is very little they can do to get the boys back before the holiday weekend. (Prequel to the other works in this series: In the Back of Your Head & Void and Null. Those don't need to be read for this to make sense, but it's more emotional if you know the rest of the story first.)

Void & Null by bootson
Six months after Brendon somehow managed to convince his new owner, Baronet Beckett, and household manager McCoy to rescue (read: buy) Spencer from a traveling sales house, Spencer is still trying to remember how "calm" and unobtrusive everyne is. It's a daily struggle that Spencer usually loses, but it's getting harder to stay guarded around this bunch, especially when they've taken to pandering to Brendon's whims and Bob's become some sort of stoic personal guard. Still yet, Spencer can't shake the lessons experience has taught him or the painful reminder that Ryan and Jon are still lost somewhere, possibly too far away to be found.

Spencer didn't actually look at anyone who came to browse, didn't care, never did. It was all the same, even if the faces changed. Not all places were like Saporta's, the vast majority were a direct opposite but they all looked like perfectly respectable people....if respectable meant in favor of owning people and forcing them to get their hands dirty so you don't have to.
