RENE BOND TIDBITS.....
I should have posted this shit a long time ago.
When I found out about a man named John Harrison, and his upcoming book about Rene Bond, I wrongly assumed this info was common knowledge. Well, apparently it's not.
I don't know when, or if, Mr. Harrison's book will be published. Nothing new has been posted about his book since January 23, 2013.
Link to John Harrison's blog is below.....
SIN STREET SLEAZE
Anyway, below is a very short piece announcing Rene Bond's engagement to a man named Ray Acebo ( June 18, 1968 ).....
Below is a short article mentioning Ray Acebo ( in photo - June 9, 1968 ).....
I also thought GOOGLE NEWSPAPER ARCHIVE was well known. But it's not.
There are a bunch of websites charging money for this shit!
The pros and cons of GOOGLE NEWSPAPER ARCHIVE.... The pros are, it's FREE!. At least half of the newspapers I've looked at over the years have been decent quality, and some have even been excellent.
The ONLY cons about GOOGLE NEWSPAPER ARCHIVE, is that some newspapers are incomplete, some are blurry, and some are unreadable. BUT IT'S FREE, DAMN IT!
Don't forget your local library!
Mini rant... Far too many people still don't "get it".... Just because something is in print does NOT make it true or accurate. Plus, things that do NOT get reported, can be just as important.
Almost everything should be taken with a HUGE grain of salt!
These days it's FAR worse. The internet is overflowing with misinformation, and outright LIES.
Most news outlets - newspapers, tv, radio - were and still are biased!... They're a reflection of the person, or persons, in charge.
WIKIPEDIA is a FUCKING JOKE!... I can NOT believe the amount of people that consider it an accurate source of information!
As you look through the online versions of these newspapers, think about everything that was going on. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered, Robert F. Kennedy had also been murdered, and most of the "news" about Vietnam had a "positive" spin that reeked of propaganda... See links below...
