In the Wall Street Journal article that I wrote about last Saturday, Bare Feet, Gyms, and Treadmills, there was one quote there that really struck me oddly.
So I decided to investigate further.
First, don’t forget that there will be a new episode of Dual Survival on tonight at 9:00pm EST. The new one is titled “Meltdown” and the description says:
Joe and Cody dodge hippos and elephants as they search for water and shelter in Zambia.
There is also sad and very unfortunate news. One of Joe Teti’s best friends was killed yesterday morning in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles. Mike Donatelli, along with two others, was involved in a military-style reality show for the Discovery Channel when the crash occurred. Mike was a former Army Ranger, Green Beret, and Delta Force Ops Sgt. He left behind a wife and two children. There are news stories here, 3 dead in helicopter crash on Discovery Channel reality TV set and Reality Show Cast Member Who Died in Crash Was Special Forces Veteran. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all his friends and family.
Now, on to “Twin Peaks” (and you can catch the rerun of it at 8:00pm EST just before the new episode).
I recently was reminded of Benjamin West’s famous painting of Penn’s Treaty with the Indians. The picture was commissioned by William Penn’s son, William, and was done in 1772.
It shows a barefoot Lenâpé Indian. But is it historical? And didn’t all the Indians wear moccasins?
