Bob1, your last post is a bit of a tongue twister. But your brief research to ascertain your position following the reply to your first post was/is commendable. Understanding that, it is clear that had you known the facts beforehand, you would not have posted your initial 'joke' (in bad taste).

The holes in the covering over the child sleeping and a little foot poking through a hole, plus the frayed left corner of the blanket on the ground show that the family were living in hard times.

Oh, I did read that wrong, and no I'm not all that familiar with it. I thought the great depression had pretty much ended by 1939, but having just looked it up I see it didn't end UNTIL 1939. "The Grapes of Wrath" sounds familiar, but I haven't read it. You're right. If I had known that the kids in the picture were probably having such a hard time, I wouldn't have joked about it.... The issue of whether I should or shouldn't have is a completely different, and very complicated issue though... and I'm still not quite sure where I stand on that. On one hand, IF joking about it did not lead to greater legitimate suffering (/negative feelings), but led to greater positive emotions, I think I SHOULD have joked about it. On the other hand, if the inverse (or converse?) is the case, I shouldn't have joked about it. The problem comes at evaluating the degrees of both positive and negative... so I'm not sure whether I should or should not have joked about it, even though I probably wouldn't had I known then what I know now.

Read the title again, Bob...these are the children of migrant agricultural workers during the Great Depression, not immigrants...that may be an episode in US history about which you are not familiar..ever read 'The Grapes of Wrath,' Bob..? The degree of desperation, extreme hardship, privation and insecurity that characterized those people's lives is something most young people today can scarcely imagine.. ..most of your posts have been well reasoned and fairly well informed..but you've got your head on backwards on this one, my friend..

Oh, I don't think it's desperation and misery. They both look very well fed and in in good health. For all we know, they just had an awesome day playing around in the field and are now just tired from having so much fun. I think it's a bit presumptuous of you to just assume that because they're immigrant it means they're under-nourished, hungry, emotionally strung out, desperate, and miserable. .... besides, it's not like my sympathy (or my simulation of sympathy) would increase either their well being or anyone else's.

Sorry Bob 1..call me an old fuddy duddy, but I just don't see anything very funny about photographs portraying human desperation and misery like this one does...but if you can find some humor in it, good for you..
2008-04-14 11:38:49
Like humor?
2008-04-14 11:28:39
Has it occurred to eithet of you that she might be really, really tired,under-nourished, hungry, and emotionally strung out ? Remember that business about beauty being in the eye of the beholder? Well, so is a lot of other stuff..

Creepiest. Picture. EVER. It looks like that evil, diabolical girl beat and abused her little brother and is now unremorsefully wondering how to dispose of the body after her sadistic, psychopathic act. She is also trying to come up with the story she will later tell the adults in order to explain the mysterious disappearance of her little brother.
