Good morning Globalization 41,

The headline posts got my attention ... historical "stream of consciousness" reading........

What I was anticipating and looking for finalized a couple of years later.

In the era of your headline posts, Truman's name was linked to the Hitler and Mussolini tags - what's going on today qualifies as "nothing new under the Sun".

The 26 June 50 new roof needed for Baltimore stadium coupled to the 27 June 50 headline "Greatest Boom ever..." ......

leads to Truman's Executive Order (XO 1034) of 9 April 1952 whereas he nationalized the steel mills over the Steel Workers strike. Condensing all this, the Supremes declared that President Harry Truman violated the law. This event must get listed with the campaigns on the Koreas as "defining".

Meanwhile, back to Frozen Chozen,................

Appreciated reading all those headlines.

Thanks Bob. … I knew little about the Korean War, other than basics. … It turns out there were communist insurgencies everywhere from eastern Europe to China. Churchill describes it best in his 1947 article about Greece, linked to above. … … ISIS-like power grabs were big fads back in those days. … In 1950, steel production and income-tax revenue from steel workers were vital and strategic U.S. resources. I'll be on the lookout for any articles on how Truman handled maximizing revenue-vs.-production.
