Schoolgirl Problems

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 12:00 PM

A Warren, Pennsylvania, newspaper article from May 12, 2018,
“A terrorist among them,” quotes Ann Creal of Warren on
schooldays of the late 1950’s and on a German exchange student,
Gudrun Ensslin, who later became famous for her violent political
activities:

“She said Ensslin dated while here (the man
she identified as Ensslin’s date told the Times Observer
he had no recollection of her).”

I am the man that was identified as Ensslin’s date, and I still
have no recollection of her.

Ann Creal is the former Ann Fuellhart, who was a college freshman
in the fall of 1959, when I was a high school senior —

Ann Creal apparently confused me with Scott Mohr, who
graduated from Warren High School in 1958. See the Log24
posts Crux and Doppelgänger.

The Internet Abyss

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 3:09 PM

Suggested by the previous post, The Crimson Abyss

“Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn, dass er nicht dabei
zum Ungeheuer wird. Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst,
blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein.”

“He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself
does not become a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss,
the abyss also gazes into you.”

—  Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil , Aphorism 146

From the Internet Abyss on Red October Day, October 25, 2010 —
