America~A Bygone Era: The Bloodiest Battle
Click for Boncarbo, Colorado Forecast Antietam 'Carnage in a Cornfield'

by Robert C. Cheeks for America's Civil War
Mr. Miller's humble cornfield near Antietam Creek became the unlikely setting for perhaps the worst fighting of the entire Civil War.
On Sunday night, September 14, 1862, Confederate General Robert E. Lee issued orders for his much scattered commands to rally at Sharpsburg, Maryland. His ambitious plans to cut the railroad bridge near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, had been thwarted by Major General George McClellan's unusually quick response to his raid into Maryland. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, thinly spread across south-central Maryland and northeastern Virginia, faced the very real threat of being beaten in detail.

All spring and summer the Confederate Army had stymied its blue-frocked adversaries, first in the Peninsula Campaign, where McClellan's Army of the Potomac was repulsed before Richmond, and then during the summer at Cedar Mountain and Second Manassas, where Maj. Gen. John Pope's ill-starred Army of Virginia was routed by the swift-marching Rebels.

Now it was Lee who was caught short. Major Generals James Longstreet and D.H. Hill had barely held the passes on South Mountain two days earlier; the heroism of their worn and hungry troops had given Lee time to reunite his army. It was an urgent matter that required Maj. Gen. Thomas J. Jackson to march his command all night from Harpers Ferry. It was a hard march that left stragglers all the way from Harpers Ferry to Sharpsburg--even Stonewall referred to it as "severe."

The ancient Olympics would not have made it to network TV on NBC...and maybe not even to cable. Women were not allowed to watch the ancient Olympics because the games were played by men in the nude! They were the X-Rated Olympics.

Good Humor Man....Never at the races....
A woman came up behind her husband while he was enjoying his morning coffee and whacked him on the back of the head. 'I found a piece of paper in your back pocket with the name 'MaryLou' written on it,' she said, furious. 'You had better have a damn good explanation!'
'Honey, please calm down!' the man replied. 'Remember last week when I was at the dog track? That was the name of the dog I bet on.'
The next morning, his wife snuck up on him and smacked him upside the head again.
'What was that for?' he complained.
'Your dog called last night!'

Relaxation & Recreation: California Dreamin'
Rainbow Basin

Northwest of Barstow, California, lies one of the most beautiful and mysterious locations in the Mojave Desert: Rainbow Basin. It’s a mishmash of shapes, colors and fantastic formations , a place where water and wind have worked magic, sculpting layers of sandstone and sediment to expose brilliantly colored formations. It changes moment by moment with the passing day, with shadows falling deep into canyons and cuts. Rainbow Basin is surrealistic, other-worldly, seemingly a land that couldn’t possibly exist on the same planet that holds forests and lakes and lush meadows.

Outdoor Tip: Series on High Altitudes
Traveling at high altitude can be hazardous. The information provided here is designed for educational use only and is not a substitute for specific training or experience. When going to altitude it is your responsibility to learn the latest information.

Classic High Altitude Symptom
High altitude-we all enjoy that tremendous view from a high summit, but there are risks in going to high altitude, and it's important to understand these risks. Here is a classic scenario for developing a high altitude illness. You fly from New York City to a Denver at 5,000 feet. That afternoon you rent a car and drive up to the trailhead at 8,000 feet. You hike up to your first camp at 9,000 feet. The next day you hike up to 10,500 feet. You begin to have a severe headache and feel nauseous and weak. If your condition worsens, you may begin to have difficulty hiking. Scenarios like this are not uncommon, so it's essential that you understand the physiological effects of high altitude.

Software, Articles, Web Sites and Tips helping YOU protect your PRIVACY!!

PGP 101: Starting in this issue we will take you through different aspects of Cryptography. In each weekly issue you will find various versions, components, substitutes and tutorials for PGP(Pretty Good Privacy). So if ya haven't done it yet, Please Subscribe today!

Lets Get Started: It is important for all internet users to understand that regular email offers no privacy, and can actually be read by many people other than who it is sent to. Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) probably keeps a copy on its computer, copies of email sent from a networked computer (such as at work or school) are probably kept behind, and all of the internet computers the email goes through on its way to the recipient can keep a copy. The administrators of all these computers can read your email if they choose to, and they can send it to anyone they might want to. The US government (and other governments) routinely intercepts email and scans it for interesting words or phrases (Echelon - Carnivore). With PGP encryption, all of these people can have free access to your email, and still have no idea as to its content - that is real privacy!

Anyone that can intercept your email, can alter your email's content; and anyone can send email that looks as if it was sent by you. With PGP, you can digitally sign your email: Automatically, PGP will calculate a complex mathematical value (called a hash) based on the exact content of your email message, and will then encrypt that value to your private key. The recipient of your email will use their PGP software to automatically make the same calculation - if the calculations match (the recipient's software automatically will use your public key to decrypt your encrypted hash), that is proof that the message has not been altered in any way (no spaces or letters have been added, deleted, changed, etc.). And since only you have the private key that encrypted the hash value that was now decrypted with your public key, this indicates that only you could have made the digital signature. So when PGP says that the signature is good, that proves that the message is both unaltered (integrity), and from who it says it is from - that is authenticity!

If you are new to all this, see PGP's Basics of CRYPTOGRAPHY.
Please download and read the the manual and next week we'll start to discuss PGP versions.

U.S. Hits Zimbabwe Farm Evictions

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department on Saturday denounced Zimbabwe's attempt to evict all of its 1,800 white farmers and thousands of farm workers as ``a reckless and reprehensible act.''

The farmers are defying a government order that would give the farms to blacks.

The State Department made no reference to race in deploring the ordered evictions. A statement urged the African government to reverse itself.

[Editors Comment]
Folks, the article below is not a racist's just plain fact......Equal Opportunity is only for certain minorities(mainly Black & Hispanic). I won't apologize for the truth, and if you can't handle the truth, oh well!

NEWSMAX.COM: Whatever Happened to Civil Rights?
Paul Craig Roberts
Aug. 8, 2002

Does anyone remember what the civil rights movement was about? Not today. Four decades later, it is "controversial" if not "racist" to recall that the civil rights movement was about equal opportunity. People were to be hired on the basis of merit and ability alone – "the best person for the job." No other factor was to play a role.

The ink was hardly dry on the 1964 Civil Rights Act before an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission bureaucrat, Alfred W. Blumrosen, illegally and unconstitutionally subverted the statutory purpose of the law. Judicial complicity and congressional distraction enabled Blumrosen to redefine discrimination from a purposeful action against an individual to the absence of proportional representation regardless of discriminatory intent.

Thus did Blumrosen originate the system of race and gender privileges known as quotas that are thoroughly institutionalized throughout the government, private industry and universities. Racial quotas are so firmly entrenched that quotas prevail even in states where federal district courts have ruled against them and referendums have made them illegal.

The 1964 Civil Rights Act has been illegally enforced for 37 years. The result is a massive system of race and gender discrimination against white males in order to achieve proportional representation of racial minorities and women.

Now comes an astonishing report from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management: "Annual Report to Congress, Federal Equal Opportunity Recruitment Program, Fiscal Year 2000," released in April 2002.

This report to Congress makes brutally clear that despite the "equal opportunity" name of the program, the purpose of the federal program is to make certain there is no equal opportunity for whites in federal employment.

The report uses tables and bar charts to make unmistakably clear that federal discrimination against whites goes far beyond merely achieving proportional representation for blacks. In all 22 independent federal agencies and in 16 of 17 federal executive departments, blacks are massively over-represented.

In the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (sic), blacks comprise 46.4 percent of the employees. The "affirmative action" or racial quota target for proportional representation (percent in Relevant Civilian Labor Force) for the EEOC is 6.4 percent black employees. Blacks are thus over-represented in EEOC employment by 625 percent!

And the EEOC is the federal agency that is supposed to enforce equal employment opportunity.

GUYS: Body Piercing:
So you're thinking about getting an eyebrow ring. Or a tongue barbell. Or a lip stud. But is it safe?

The American Dental Association discourages all types of oral (i.e., mouth-related) piercing because the jewelry can injure your gums and damage your teeth. Also, oral pierces get infected easily because the mouth is teeming with bacteria. Dentists also warn that it's possible for oral jewelry to come loose and that you could accidentally swallow or choke on it.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

GALS: UTI Prevention
Drink Liquids and Urinate Frequently

One in five women will have a urinary tract infection (UTI) in her lifetime. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to prevent UTIs. recommends:
- Drink plenty of liquids, especially water. Cranberry juice may have infection-fighting properties.
- Urinate frequently, and avoid retaining your urine for a long time after you feel the urge to void.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

BEAUTY: Finger Nails
Summer is the time when your nails are very much on display. But how do you edit the endless choices when it comes to nail polish. If you have a wide nail bed, which result in noticeably large nails, avoid dark colors that will make them seem even bigger. Go for the camouflage effect of pinks and peaches for a more subtle statement.

"I have 41 MB of space taken up in my inbox in Netscape 4.7x and I can't find out how to get rid of it. When I delete emails, I use the ALT-delete method so that the emails do not go into trash. I have searched all the boxes in my email and can't find any messages that would be taking up this amount of space. Any suggestions on how to find and delete this information that is taking up space on my hard drive?"

Missing Link

TIP: Panko Tip
Also known as Japanese-style breadcrumbs, panko can be used to achieve a crispy texture in many dishes. Basically they are coarse, shredded (almost crunchy) breadcrumbs. Try using them to top casseroles. They are especially good when used to bread seafood (like shrimp). Use them in crab cake recipes. Available at specialty food shops and Asian markets.
