Heh. Japanese fruits and vegetables do tend to be smaller (although not always: they grow some of the biggest apples I've ever seen here, which also happen to be the best tasting). But often they have more taste. If you concentrate only on the yield in terms of pounds per acre or whatever, sometimes taste is sacrificed. The eggplants here, for example, are smaller, but taste very good. Cucumbers, I don't know. They don't seem to have much taste wherever you go, so may as well go for price.

@ Anax

Yeah, here too you can buy big (~ like my forearm) or small (~ size of my hand) cucumbers. The big ones are nearly tasteless with a bitter skin. But the small ones are delicious and crunchy, and I eat them whole. (As I do with small zucchini, raw.)

As an aside, I'm astonished how many people seem to have trouble digesting cucumbers…

The Washington Times wrote:Court: Cherokee Freedmen have right to tribal citizenship

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Descendants of black slaves, known as freedmen, who once were owned by members of the Cherokee Nation have a right to tribal citizenship under a ruling handed down by a federal court in Washington, D.C.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan ruled Wednesday in a long-standing dispute between the CherokeeFreedmen and the second-largest tribe in the United States which claims more than 317,000 citizens.

“The Cherokee Nation can continue to define itself as it sees fit,” Hogan wrote in the ruling, “but must do so equally and evenhandedly with respect to native Cherokees and the descendants of Cherokee Freedmen.”

Cherokee Nation Attorney General Todd Hembree said in a statement the tribe does not plan to appeal the ruling.

In the 1920s, the KKK functioned as the primary social club and lodge in some places, as well as the larger political aims.

As such, it was bigger in the Midwest than in the South. In the South it was distinctly low class.

Not usually a terrorist outfit, unlike the original KKK or the 1950s revival.

Arizona is racist? More than Illinois?

South Carolina is so gay? Who knew? I'll have to check it out and Gaffney is the new Key West. The Peach Capital you know. :BigGrin3:
