Today is the 99th anniversary of the Grand Canyon becoming a national park, so I was searching for some fun vintage GT postcards to commemorate the occasion. There are tons.
But my image quest also turned up this disturbing postcard depicting a U.S. soldier abusing his power and using a violent tool to harass a woman. Shit like this informed generations of American men, teaching them such behavior was A-OK in the U.S.A.

Today marks the 57th anniversary of John Kennedy and Richard Nixon’s third of four televised debates. It’s an insignificant anniversary, yes, but deserves revisiting in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton last year.
In a move that will hopefully help squash male chauvinism, the Boy Scouts of America announced they will now accept young women.
