Ever thought the sayings might be valid?

Umm. I have, and do, and ran across some history of the county, which, given the current light FOX places on Spring Breakers, is repetitive:

July 20, 1894. At Union School house, after church last Sunday night, three young men tried to force themselves on a young lady to escort her home. The result was much disorder. These young men should hide their faces in shame.

To sharpen the point somewhat, it was, in that time, a shameful thing to have ones personal name in a paper calling attention to ones short comings and having their transgressions spread beyond their peers.

Shaming, like shunning, was a favorite technique, much as justice is carried out now, in Japan and China. And in the Amish areas.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
