All The Best
THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED
I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.
My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.
At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.
An elephant never forgets.

Past Injustice and Reparations
Jews claim rights to Palestinian lands to the extent that European Jews and Jews from foreign countries displace present day Arab occupants by taking their property without their consent and proper compensation. They claim rights as descendants even though tens of centuries have come and gone past the time of their ancestral presence.
Europe and the US has acquiesced to these claims as a form of reparations because of injustice to Jews by European Christians. The US has no dog in that hunt.
However, if that precedent is legitimate for the Jews (and seems to be with unquestioned US support for Israeli behavior) then the US has plenty to account for with African slave descendants and American Indians.
Or is their one standard for European Jews and no standard for American citizens of Indian and African descent?
Most Mexicans are descendants of American Indians. Their lands were taken by Europeans and European Americans
