“This approach might seem obvious now, but in the late 1960s when these journeys took place, it was revolutionary. Because most anthropologists and archaeologists working then were male, and because hunting is considered to be our ancestors’ primal drama—specifically, a man’s drama—a disproportionate amount of time, ink, and wishful thinking has been devoted to the subject.*”—
The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival - John Vaillant
On how the stone-age ‘hunter’ of lore was more the carrion-gatherer and how revisionist history has made him into a slayer of great beast and above nature.
With my yellow fenders on my Franken bike as the weather will start to warm and the salt off the roads and the internally gear hubs start unfreezing I’ll be riding my Globe Centrum more and more- I want to outfit it with wood fenders - partially because it needs fenders and partially because it’s silver organic hydroformed frame would look great with wood.
Anyone know where I can get some nice wood fenders with mounting hardware that doesn’t require fender brazeons as the Centrum’s discbrake takes up where such a thing would normally be?

House Republicans, who orchestrated the symbolic exercise as an early gesture to the tea party movement, touted it as a way to bring the new Congress, and the people they represent, back to America’s roots.
But they didn’t want to go all the way back.
They skipped several passages that no longer apply, including those that condoned slavery, angering some Democrats. On a day designed to celebrate the Founding Fathers’ growing role in the nation’s political discourse, Democrats accused Republicans of distorting history and the men who wrote it.
Rep. James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.), the House’s top-ranking African American, declined to participate in the reading. He said omitting the slavery clauses amounted to “revisionist history.”
“It could have been very educational if all the members talked about the United States Constitution as a living document, talked about how this country wrestled with things like race and gender,” Clyburn said in an interview.
