About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

40th Anniversary of the End

A. Peter Dewey (photo source) wrote in 1945, in a line seemingly from Joseph Conrad or Graham Greene: "Cochinchina is burning, the French and British are finished here, and we ought to clear out of Southeast Asia." (Dick Cavett's Vietnam made me aware of this quotation.)

30 years later, and 40 years ago, the USA did leave Vietnam.
