Video 3 of 3 In 1964 Peter Griffiths, Conservative candidate in Smethwick constituency won his seat using the slogan “If you want a nigger for a neighbour VOTE LABOR” The general election was won by Labour, overturning 13 years of Conservative government. In contrast, largely because of the race issue, a Labour majority of 3544 was turned into a Tory majority of 1774, defeating the senior Labour MP Patrick Gordon in Smethwick. The “nigger for a neighbour” slogan was attributed to the Griffiths campaign in a BBC interview by Labour leader Harold Wilson. Griffiths denied using those words, but said that they accurately reflected the frustrations of locals. Immediately after the election Wilson (as prime minister) attacked Griffiths in the House of Commons, calling him the “parliamentary leper”. Additionally the Tories had also taken control of the local council, instituting a policy on Marshall Street of buying houses which came up for sale and putting them back on the market for sale to whites only. In an attempt to better-integrated immigrants. Soon after, Americas Malcolm X visited Marshall Street and was interviewed, saying: “I have come here because I am disturbed by reports that coloured people in Smethwick are being badly treated. I have heard they are being treated as the Jews under Hitler. I would not wait for the fascist element in Smethwick to erect gas ovens.” Malcolm X was shot dead in Harlem days after his return from this trip. Later that year in October a … Video Rating: 5 / 5

That’s when we had 3 computers networked together using thin-wire (10-base-2) ethernet (you know.. with the terminators) and DOS drivers so that we could play 3player doom. Using config.sys menu options, we simply all rebooted, held down ‘4’, and via command-line options, Quake would be started with everyone in the same map automatically.

Buckhannon. a town of about 7,500 people, is the seat of Upshur County, West Virginia along the Buckhannon River. It is is home to West Virginia Wesleyan College and the annual West Virginia Strawberry Festival, held every year during the third week of May. The town is in north-central West Virginia, about 110 miles northwest of the capital city of Charleston.
Buckhannon was named by local white settlers for Buckongahelas, a renowned chief of the Lenape (Delaware) during the Border War. The chief’s favorite hunting grounds were located near the present site of the city.
King Malachi Street (October 21, 1933 October 21, 1978), commonly known as Mel Street, was an American country music singer. Street was born in Grundy, Virginia to a coal mining family in 1933, although his family maintains that he was born in 1935. He began performing on western Virginia and West Virginia radio shows at the age of sixteen. Street subsequently worked as a radio tower electrician in Ohio, and as a nightclub performer in the Niagara Falls area. He moved back to West Virginia in 1963 to open up an auto body shop. From 1968 to 1972, Street hosted his own show on a Bluefield, West Virginia television station. He recorded his first single “Borrowed Angel” in 1970 for a small regional record label. A larger label, Royal American Records, picked it up in 1972, and it became a top-10 Billboard hit. He recorded the biggest hit of his career, “Lovin’ on the Back Streets” in 1973. Street continued to flourish throughout the mid-1970s, recording several hits, such as “You Make Me Feel More Like a Man,” “Forbidden Angel,” “I Met a Friend of Yours Today,” “If I Had a Cheatin’ Heart,” and “Smokey Mountain Memories.” He signed with Mercury Records in 1978, but he gave in to clinical depression and alcoholism, committing suicide on October 21, 1978, his 45th birthday.

I found some interesting history on the Vanmeter family web site about the house that I saw during a trip to Chillicothe, Ohio:
"The Vanmeter Church Street House is significant as an excellent example of Greek Revival architecture set within a fine grouping of 19th century residential properties. The Vanmeters were important lawyers in the 19th century in Ross County and the State of Ohio."
Wikipedia and ask.com also have interesting details.
"The Vanmeter Church Street House was built in 1848 by William H. Thompson, a farmer. It was purchased by John I. Van Meter in 1856 and has remained in the Vanmeter family ever since. John I. Vanmeter was born in Hardy County, Virginia, in 1798. He was educated at Princeton, and at the law school of Judge Gould, at Litchfield, Connecticut. He practiced law at Moorefield, Virginia, and was shortly elected to the legislature of Virginia. After coming to what was to become Ross County, he married Mary Harness in 1826. Mary Harness was the daughter of Jospeh and Mary Harness, who were among the earliest settlers of the Scioto Valley, Ohio. In 1854, Mary Harness Vanmeter died and John I. Vanmeter moved to Chillicothe. He was elected to the lower house of the Ohio Legislature in 1836 and to the Ohio Senate in 1840, and in 1842, he was elected to Congress.
"John Marshall Vanmeter, John I. Vanmeter’s son, inherited the property from his father. He was graduated from Harvard Law School and began practice in Chillicothe in 1857. He was appointed Judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Ross County in 1881. The house still remains in the Vanmeter family.
The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
