The Art Story: Works Progress Administration (WPA)
"In all, nearly 200,000 artworks were created under the Federal Art Project, yet many of those works have since become lost or were destroyed after the WPA auctioned off thousands of paintings in 1943, when all federally-funded art programs were dissolved."

The Marshall Islands, once a U.S. nuclear test site, face oblivion again | The Washington Post
"'For four bullets into a tree in Iraq, they could fix this place.'"
...
"In 1954, the 'Castle Bravo' test... detonated with 1,000 times the force of the Hiroshima explosion. It hurled into the sky a massive plume of pulverized coral that drifted eastward and fell like ashy snowflakes on the people of Rongelap and Utirik atolls. Several days after Bravo, after children had eaten the ash, ..."
...
"In 2001, an independent nuclear-claims tribunal awarded the RMI $2.3 billion in health and property damages, but there was no mechanism to force the United States to pay it."
...
"Half the residents of Ebeye are under 20 years old, and a third are unemployed. The island has been called 'the slum of the Pacific.'"
...
"DeBrum then railed against nations that are modernizing their arsenals, a trend that he and other nations say is a violation of the grand bargain of the treaty... The United States is extending the life of its warheads, shrinking but updating its weapons infrastructure, and planning to construct a new fleet of submarines with nuclear-armed missiles.

"The price tag on this modernization plan? One trillion dollars over the next 30 years... Even though the United States has reduced its stockpile by 86 percent from its Cold War high, this reinvestment in nuclear arms doesn’t sit well with a poor island nation that has actually felt what nuclear war would be like."

The Strange Story Of The Man Behind 'Strange Fruit' : NPR
"There is something else about Abel Meeropol that seems to connect the man who wrote 'Strange Fruit' to the man who created a loving family out of a national scandal. ...
"'I was the official lawnmower,' Robert says, 'and I was going to mow over them, and he said, "Oh, no, you can't kill the seedlings!" I said, "What are you going to do with them, Dad? There are dozens of them."

"'Well, he dug them up and put them in coffee cans and lined them up along the side of the house. And there were hundreds of them. But he couldn't bring himself to just kill them. It was just something he couldn't do.'"

‘How to tell your friends from the Japs’ in TIME, 1941 vs. ‘Turban Primer’ in RedEye, 2012 – Sixteen Minutes to Palestine
"Two weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, TIME Magazine ran an article titled “How to tell your friends from the Japs”, an arbitrary and insensitive guide on how to differentiate the Japanese from the Chinese. Today, just over a day after the shooting in Milwaukee that left six dead in a Sikh house of worship, Chicago’s RedEye printed a “Turban Primer”, a similarly insensitive guide on arbitrary religio-cultural distinctions between, essentially, Brown people from South East Asia and the Middle East."

all about implications.
