    Talk about exploding heads.

      the Jesus photos are of a blue-eyed blond guy .... sometimes snub-nosed and freckled!

      He probably looked a little more Apache, or Arab, than that.

        Of course, since I had Jewish classmates who were blonde as well as redheaded and freckled, I didn't immediately recognize the absurdity.

          or even Apache ones, in a town with a main street named Cherokee.
          The school's football team was the Indians.

          I was in junior high, and back in Texas, before any of my classmates weren't WASP kids.

            in a predominately Jewish neighborhood in Atlanta in the 1960's. We also had Greek American and Latino neighbors. A far cry from the rural farm and mill town of my parent's childhood.

            OTOH, our High School football team was the "Gray Knights".

              ours was the Broncos, and then I moved to Denver City the next year, where the team was the Mustangs.

              We were not urban folk then; my children grew up in town, and don't know how to ride horses or milk cows or even gather eggs. I am not sure whether I failed them or not, though both have at least one college degree; the older is an IT specialist and the younger studying to be a teacher.
