The Face Of Good And Evil

To search out and reveal those who were not wholly devout was good -
while for common folk to criticize holy members of the clergy was evil.
But that was in the past; that was history; was Christian doctrinal truth.

Faces of good and evil are not fixed in human affairs. Time reverses that which was but yesterday, so apparently unchangeable.

Two are one.

On this date, May 24 in 1844, In a demonstration witnessed by members of Congress, American inventor Samuel F.B. Morse dispatched a telegraph message from the U.S. Capitol to Alfred Vail at a railroad station in Baltimore, Maryland. The message -- "What Hath God Wrought?" -- was telegraphed back to the Capitol a moment later by Vail. The question was taken from the Bible (Numbers 23:23).

Just a decade after the first line opened, more than 20,000 miles of telegraph cable crisscrossed the country. The rapid communication it enabled greatly aided American expansion, making railroad travel safer as it provided a boost to business conducted across the great distances of a growing United States.



-  Massive slaughter, as in war; a massacre.
-  Corpses, especially of those killed in battle.
-  The flesh of slain animals or men
bloodshed, slaughter, massacre, butchery and bloodbath.

Carnage is one of the most powerful words in the language. But already TV reporters are watering down the word by using it to describe the building debris left by a tornado or hurricane, even when no bodies are present.

Bob Dylan
(born May 24, 1941)
 Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, music producer, artist, and writer. He has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s when he was an informal chronicler and a seemingly reluctant figurehead of social unrest.

A number of Dylan's early songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'", became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements. Leaving his initial base in the culture of folk music behind, Dylan's six-minute single "Like a Rolling Stone" radically altered the parameters of popular music in 1965. His recordings employing electric instruments attracted denunciation and criticism from others in the folk movement.
