One of the mainstay references for this blog has been Geov Parrish's this Day in Radical History, things that happened on this day that you never had to memorize in school. The organization/website that had commissioned and archived his articles did two things. 1. They informed (laid-off) him his services were no longer required. 2. Despite assurances to the contrary, archives of his columns were removed and are no longer available.

This made references in This Day in History no longer valid. That's the bad news. The good news is that I had downloaded the entire year's worth of Geov's column. I have been in correspondence with Geov and have his blessings to continue to use these downloaded copies. He has told me he is updating the entries and is looking for somewhere to have them posted/archived. He has also promised me copies of any updated entries. For the time being, I will reference this announcement in my blog. Whenever there is a change in availability, I will update this single announcement.

I am grateful to Geov for his gracious permission to use his previous columns and look forward to the updated and expanded version of Geov Parrish's this Day in Radical History, things that happened on this day that you never had to memorize in school.

Remember "they hate us for our freedoms"?

I guess 'they' don't have to hate us anymore, eh?
