Paper Bag Day is, I suppose, a celebration of the invention & existence of the paper bag.  It appears to have come into existence in 2019, perhaps in response to the growing efforts to do away with single use plastic bags.  Possibly sponsored by the pulp or paper or paper bag industry in the hopes that more such bags would wind up being single use than would be reused.  Perish the thought that folks should turn back the clock to the days of woven baskets, string bags and/or cloth bags; this is the disposable culture and we'll just go with paper if we can't have plastic, right?  Cynicism aside,  paper bags have many uses besides as cat traps and head coverings and have been around at least since Francis Wolle got a patent of the first paper bag machine in 1852. It was, however, a woman (of course) named Margaret E. Knight who designed the square, flat bottomed bag, and the machine that would fold and paste them in 1870.  All the same able to be re-used, re-purposed and recycled or not, their production is more than a little problematic and environmentally toxic, so I'll stick with cloth or bags like the chico bag that are woven from recycled plastic bottles.

Called the Bisbee Deportation, a classic example of fascist domestic tyrrany occurred in Bisbee Az on this date in 1917.  None less than FDR told us that fascism was ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.  In this case, it was owned by a notoriously horrible company named Phelps-Dodge.  At its behest, the sheriff of Cochise County , Az, one Harry C. Wheeler, deputized some 2,000 people and then used those fascist storm troopers to kidnap about 1,300 striking mine workers and their supporters at gunpoint based on lists prepared by said Phelps-Doge, the government's owner, and "deport" (exile) them to New Mexico in cattle cars against their will.  At the end of their 16 mile desert train ride with no food and almost no water they were ordered to never return to Bisbee, and that was that.  The felonious lackey of a sheriff then seized the telegraph and telephone lines to keep word of this outrageous activity from getting out.  Nobody was ever fined, jailed, penalized or punished in any way for this outrageously criminal act because "business is business", ya know, and mining has always been above the law and the norms of civilized behavior.  Besides, some say there were rumors  that some of those miners were Wobblies anyway. 

Phelps-Dodge grew and prospered as might be expected from its obviously All American(TM) ethics, ethos and business practices, and was eventually absorbed by Freeport-McMoRan, about which the less said the better. Meanwhile, Bisbee grew into a thriving metropolis of some 5,600 or so people where tourists can tour the old copper mine or visit the the mining and historical museum in the old Phelps-Dodge general office building (a historical landmark, for what it is worth).  The town also at some point shed its openly fascist form of government and became more or less as democratic as the average US city or town.  I was going to say "let us not forget the poor miners", but everybody pretty much did.  The miners got the shaft and after a poorly documented period of suffering, starvation and similar hardships pretty much just disappeared from history. Presumably some of them had names and some probably eventually found work somewhere and maybe even married and raised families, but they're just "the Deportees".

young teen she tried to intervene when the cops were mistreating a black diplomat for having a merc and they beat the shit out of her and charged her with interfering and assault on a cop. Just inspired here more.

Olive Elaine Morris (26 June 1952 – 12 July 1979) was a Jamaican-born British-based community leader and activist in the feminist, Black nationalist, and squatters' rights campaigns of the 1970s. Morris was a key organiser in the Black Women's Movement in the United Kingdom, co-founding the Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent in London and support groups in Manchester. She joined the British Black Panthers and squatted 121 Railton Road in Brixton.

Morris died at the age of 27. Her life and work have been widely commemorated, both by official organisations – Lambeth Council named a building after her – and by activist groups. She features on lists of inspirational Black British women and in June 2020 was brought to wider attention with a Google Doodle.

@Dawn's Meta This is sort of how it goes for we elders in marriage mode:
The lady had been married 41 years, and her husband passed away over 15 years ago. So, out of nowhere, she met TLOHL and married for 6 1/2 years, then he passed away. I will probate his will. I mentioned to her that I am 69, got married a week ago. She said, "Now you know real love, the love you have only dreamed of all your life. My 6 1/2 years with my husband were the best years of my life. Now, it is your turn."

We were just there for the Fourth of July. We had lovely time, got rained on and visited some old friends.
I wrote a few words about the Bisbee Deportation for another website a long time ago and I was there in 2017 for the filming of Bisbee '17, a movie about the Deportation.
There was another deportation of striking miners in Arizona that same year.
It happened in Jerome, Arizona on July 10, two days before the one in Bisbee.
From Western Mining History.com:

In July of 1917, armed vigilantes rounded up around 75 members of the Industrial Workers of the World labor union and forced them onto cattle cars. The IWW men were then shipped to Needles, California and told never to return to Jerome. Authorities in California sent dozens of armed guards to intercept the train, stating that "Arizona can't dump her undesirables on California." The train turned around and transported the deportees to Kingman, Arizona.
This event would turn out to be a trial run for a much larger deportation at Bisbee in the coming days

we did camp in Sierra Vista once, using the trailer as home base while hitting some birding hot spots in the area. Maybe some other time, though lacking the trailer makes our wandering a bit more complicated.

Interesting that you were there for that filming, must've been quite an experience.

I read about Jerome, and thought about tossing it in too, but figured that Bisbee was enough, and that there were too many officially sanctioned or committed crimes against miners to start going down that road.

That is sure on target.

Enjoyed learning about the Bisbee story too. Speakig of which, haven't seen Bisbonian around lately. Hope he's alright. I think he retired after the planes he was flying started falling from the sky. Hope he's playing his banjo and enjoying himself somewhere.

As to bags, A few years ago, I came across a trade day deal on insulated cloth grocery bags - $0.25 each. Was offered a box deal and regretted not buying them all and giving them away. They do have advertising on them but hey for a quarter? Plus they've stood the test of time.

Now the trick is keeping them in your car! I've finally mastered that by returning them right after putting away groceries. We also use paper bags in our recycling area (often with paste board boxes inside them - especially for glass and paper recycling). We empty them each week and just refill them the next week. I do sometimes get plastic bags at the grocery primarily for giving away garden produce.

Already mowed this AM. More rain due this PM. Wish we could send some out y'alls way.

Olive Morris, succinct and brilliant.

I always returned my bags to the car fairly promptly because no handy place in the house to leave them laying around. We have a place near the front door for temporary stash, so it became automatic to grab them on the way out the door and take them out to the car whenever one went outside.

Since we have curbside recycling, I cant use paper ones for that, put our refuse collectors also pick up shredded documents which are put in paper bags to segregate them from the other recycling for secure disposal.

Remember the fun we had with those. Mark it up too much and could tear it off and start again. Great for wrapping paper as well with markers to make your own design as you went. Try to avoid plastic bags as much as possible but when get one use and reuse until cannot.

I have a lot of the “bring your own bags” that have a permanent home in my car. My favorite way to give a gift to someone is to gave them a “bag” with the gift and they can reuse again and again. Have a good day all.

well, also using bright colored non-stick shelf paper so that mine would jump out at me.

Furoshiki! I used to wrap presents in bandannas or larger custom made cloth in the Furoshiki style along with instructions inside that showed a great number of ways to wrap stuff with furoshiki. I eventually got some furoshiki that had such instructions printed on them. They are traditional Japanese cloths that can be used to wrap gifts or carry packages or groceries or damn near anything else. Tea-towels would work too.

This link shows the cloth with instructions that I once procured for such use:

Hi EL! Hope all is well your way... Thanks for the amazing Bisbee history. I have been through it a dozen times, though not recently. It is a great little town, very nice for a mining town, and not really what one might think of those. Seemed to have an active artistic side and culture. And a very large XXL hole in the ground.

Henry David was awesome... We went to Walden's, mused and birded a few times the 9 months we lived in Mass. In 1984-5 don't think it looked like what he saw though.

Bucky F. was amazing too. Paid $10 or more to see him lecture once in LA. Talking 'good concert' dough at the time in later 70's. He was a great speaker. There were a couple guys that lived offgrid in geodesic domes in the foothills of the Sierra, some of the hippies of Big Pine, in early 70's. Their places were very neat, especially when the Peter Green was playing.

Christine did the cover art for Kiln House, the first post Peter Green F.Mac album and last with Jeremy Spencer. A great sleeper one-off Mac album. She was not yet a member of the band but did play and do some backup vocals on it, though I think only credited for the cover art. The cover opened up so the pic is only the front or right half of the illustration, which was very cool.

things happened and I had to miss it. That was back when dome based houses and other buildings were popping up all over out here. Still plenty around, part of the landscape now and one hardly notices. They used some for radomes all over the world and when they pulled out some got put to interesting uses. One such is the "Canopy Tower" ecolodge in Panama, look out your window and you're looking at the canopy, great birding locale, but the best stuff requires a day tour (or night) out. Have to dust your boots for chiggers when exiting however, something new to me (advantage of being a CA type).

Didn't know Christine did that cover, saw it once, maybe twice.
