Boxing match between Roy Campbell and Dick Hyland, Steveston, 1913 Source: WJ Cairns, City of Vancouver Archives #Sp P98.1 Via pasttensevancouver

Check out the condition of those two mugs. Pure brutality.

pretty interesting, this. First of all, pretty sure it’s Ray Campbell, not Roy (I trust BoxRec.com more than I do the Vancouver Archives). 2nd: Being 1913 these guys are among the first official Welterweights (my “walking around” weight class). 3rd: Frustrating that they don’t identify which fighter is which. Campbell won the fight but you can see both hands getting raised. I assume the fellow on the far right is the ref, but….. Yeah, this is a story. 
Ednote: Vancouver Archives got at me to help them to correct this. nice.

America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: there is no justification for this. None. Violence like this is no way to honor religion or faith.

U.S. Secretary of State HILLARY CLINTON, remarking on the killings in Libya. (via inothernews)

Funny that someone as horribly violent as Hillary Clinton thinks she has any ground to stand on when decrying any sort of violence and its possible justifications and context.
