Friends, we need your help.
Last week, Gregory Warner and David Kestenbaum reported on the afterlife of American clothes. Lots of t-shirts from used clothes bin in the U.S. eventually make their way to sub-Saharan Africa.
Including the one above. From Jennifer’s bat-mitzvah from November 20, 1993. We want to find Jennifer.
What we Know: Jennifer’s bat mitzvah was on November 20, 1993. The theme may have been cartoons. And there’s a nametag in the shirt labeled Rachel Williams.
That’s all we know. Which is where you come in.
Do you know Rachel? Do you know Jennifer? Help us solve the mystery. Please email us at email@example.com, and put “that’s my shirt” in the subject line. And please share this as much as you can. It would be really awesome to find Jennifer and talk to her about her bat mitzvah t-shirt’s journey.
Kerry Callen explains what happened right BEFORE that iconic moment on the cover of Action Comics #1.
Soviet space propaganda posters, 1958-1963
“I am happy - this is my work joining the work of my republic”
“Soviet man – be proud, you opened the road to stars from Earth!”
“We will open the distant worlds!”
“Glory to the Fatherland of Heroes!”
“We were born to make the fairy tale come true!”
“Socialism is our launching pad”
“Fatherland! You lighted the star of progress and peace. Glory to the science, glory to the labor! Glory to the Soviet regime!”
“Through the worlds and ages.”
“In the name of peace and progress!”

Calvin’s snowmen are breathtaking achievements and I will accept no disputes
I freaking love Calvin’s snowmen
They forgot the best one though!
We never got enough snow to do this after we moved into town. It made me sad.
No, this is the best one.
