ITEM:
The story of this brutal winter may best be told 60 miles east of Buffalo, where a mine runs as deep as the Empire State Building is tall.
It's here where you'll find a couple hundred miners 1,300 feet below ground working nine-hour shifts, seven days a week to keep up with the nation's voracious appetite for this season's hottest commodity: Salt.
Indeed, salt for road/street treatment for winter weather is in such demand, and there are shortages and order backlogs all around.

Alternatives for pre-treating are a brine solution, or a "beet juice" treatment, and another -- that might be "pickle juice" (but I'm vague on recalling what it was).

Good morning/late-for-tea, Kitchen-eers.

<quoted text>Something CRAZY, my great-grandfather was the constable of Marion when that happened. My grandfather was a young boy and though told to stay home when his father got wind of it and left to try to stop it, he snuck off on his bike to follow him, and almost witnessed his father coming to his end, too. Great-grandpa resigned the next day, and it haunted him until his death. Ironic, that they lived in the home my great grandmother was born in, in 1899; and that house was built by her family in 1844, and a part of the Underground Railroad. It was on the National Register of Historic Places, until it burned down in the late 90s.
Very interesting for a family connection to history, Paisley.

With a little more research, one might find several random (or are they?) connections in life's web -- an x degrees of separation:

The author of Strange Fruit, inspired by the lynching photograph:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abel_Meeropol
Abel Meeropol (February 10, 1903 - October 30, 1986) was an American writer, teacher[1] and song-writer, best known under his pseudonym Lewis Allan and as the adoptive father of the young sons of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.[2]

The photographer:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_Beitler
Lynching photos were made into postcards to show off civic pride and white supremacy, but the tortured bodies and grotesquely happy crowds ended up angering and revolting as many as they scared. The photo sold thousands of copies, which Beitler stayed up for 10 days and nights printing them.

>>> Every time you hear Bob Dylan’s somewhat hard-to-listen-to Desolation Row, the first line you heard is “They’re selling postcards of the hanging”, inspired by the above photo [no primary source for this though -- but it's plausible: DW]

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I have forgotten about this episode!
I used to get off work in the '70's, drink some beer, smoke a joint with my friends, and watch Monty Python! We would lay on the floor crying our eyes out laughing. We didn't need a joint!
Most of American comedy is copied from Croft and his partner (I can't remember). I hope they put "Are you being served?" on again in the States. I only have "Keeping Up Appearances" now. Dave Allen was fantastic!!!
"Tank you, Tank you, Tank you!".- Lawrence Welk
Do you remember this one:)

I never tire of it!

I think this is what you mean ... but where do your get enough ??????????

The city of Bergen County, New Jersey, is slated to become the most delicious smelling city in America. Provided, of course, that you are a fan of deli pickles. In the wake of a rough, stormy winter season on the east coast, the affluent enclave has turned to pickle brine as a cheaper alternative rock salt to keep their roads clear and navigable.

From the Time Magazine newsfeed blog:

And the price can’t be beat: the briny mixture costs just 7 cents a gallon, compared to $63 a ton for salt. Quick math works the pickle juice out to roughly $16 per ton [...]

gotta have a hell of a summer time aroma

You replied to the "revolution" part. I guess that I assumed that you took the rest as an FYI and declined to reply to that. I'm good with that. I looked up a couple of "Bulgaria" sources and didn't reply back either (it takes me awhile to load up some news sources to read).

That was probably it -- pickle brine, Tally. I probably saw it on network TV evening news. Thanks.
