Japanese American history in New Mexico
Though a lifelong New Mexican, I had no idea before reporter Margaret Wright embarked onthis story that our state was home to internment camps for Japanese Americans during WWII.
Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar is working to rectify that kind of widespread cultural ignorance. Salazar has been speaking about how minority history is largely left out of monuments countrywide. Less than 3 percent of the United States’ landmarks are dedicated to minority groups.

The Downfall of 420 Hangovers
While April 20 is mainly known for clouds of marijuana smoke, a lesser-known fact about the day is that it was the birthday of the modern world's most evil dictator. As mentioned in yesterday's DayBird, April 20, 1889 was the day German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler began his maniacal career that brought Europe to the brink of destruction and back. Now that you've sobered up, perhaps now is the time to transition from revelry to revelation, and the following works can help shed a little light on the fascinating history of Nazi Germany and World War II.

Seventy Years Ago Today
On Sept. 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland under the pretense of having been attacked by the Poles (it was staged by Nazis). This is generally regarded as being the beginning of World War II. Tens of millions of people would be killed in Europe and Asia before the end of the war.
Here is the British poet W.H. Auden’s poem “September 1, 1939” about the break-out of the war.
