“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.” T.S. Eliot (via lazyyogi)

See the journal page that records the election of George Washington of Virginia, now on display from April 1 to 16, 2014, in the National Archives Building.

This year marks the 225th anniversary of the First Congress. On March 4, 1789, the Congress of the United States met for the first time. It was arguably the most important Congress in U.S. history.

To this new legislature fell the responsibility of passing laws needed to implement a brand new system of government, defining the rules and procedures of the House and Senate, and establishing the precedents that set constitutional government in motion.

One of the first duties of the new legislative body was to meet jointly and count the electoral ballots for President and Vice President of the United States. This page of the first Senate Journal shows the results of that election: George Washington of Virginia was unanimously elected President, and John Adams of Massachusetts, who finished second in the balloting, was elected Vice President.

1937 dust storm hits Clayton, N.M.

May 29, 1937: The original Los Angeles Times caption reported:

This black roller dust storm is rushing toward Clayton, New Mexico. It was one of worst ever to strike that portion of southwestern dust bowl. A moment after this picture was taken the city was in darkness. The storm lasted several hours and was followed by rain. The interiors of houses were coated with dust and the outsides with mud. This picture was taken by an amateur photographer who happened to see the storm coming.

This photo was published in the May 29, 1937, Los Angeles Times.

“By telling you anything at all I’m at least believing in you, I believe you’re there, I believe you into being. Because I’m telling you this story I will your existence. I tell, therefore you are.” Margaret Atwood, from The Handmaid’s Tale (via violentwavesofemotion)
