She’s My Pride And Joy

Jack Corn, October 1974

Mr. Barry Howard of Cumberland, Kentucky may be smiling as his hand pats the hood of a new truck, but his wife’s pursed lips reveal more to the story. The truck was bought with funds received from his black lung payments, compensating for the shortness of breath caused by coal dust particles in his lungs.

How To Party Like It’s 1970

Once you’ve worked up a sweat, go grab yourself a glass of cold refreshments from an ancient chaperone.

1970 Blackcat

Dance to the groovy tunes of a guy wearing a headband.

And if possible, be crowned something that proves you’re better than everyone else.

See the envy in their eyes as you rock that crown. Dang, it feels good to be a gangster.

Rice University Flooded

Houston’s prestigious Rice University has been hit hard by Harvey.¬†Though the school will officially remain closed through Wednesday, one wonders how students will even be able to attend class at all.

Though nothing of this proportion has ever been witnessed in Houston, my issue of the 1975 Rice yearbook shows students out and about in lesser downpours. Houston, in my own experience, can flood at the drop of a dime.

I bet none of these students could ever have imagined what happened this past weekend at their alma mater. Please pray for Houston.
