Surprised no one has done this for this collection yet:

The Zimmermann Telegram
Arthur Zimmermann

Thanks Nicholi! :) What power to move events a few words can have! From Wikipedia: "The Zimmerman Telegram was a secret diplomatic communication issued from the German Foreign Office in 1917 that proposed a military alliance between Germany and Mexico."

Your source, "docsteach" is one I hadn't seen before. It looks like a good source to explore for readings!
Also, Arthur Zimmermann is a new "author" for the LibriVox catalog, something we like here at SNF!

Hi Craig, Thanks for reading this text by Justin Martyr! :) It was new to me. Some of what Justin wrote so long ago struck me as being true even today, particularly when he says that people should be judged by their deeds, not their name [or, updated for today's world, by their name, their color, their religion, or preferences, etc.] "Wherefore we demand that the deeds of all those who are accused to you be judged, in order that each one who is convicted may be punished as an evil-doer, and not as a Christian; and if it is clear that any one is blameless, that he may be acquitted, since by the mere fact of his being a Christian he does no wrong." (page 12)

There are only a couple of edits needed. Both occur on page 18:

at 25:30, text reads "If thy right eye offend thee, cut it out" You said "hand."

at 26:44, text reads " For what shall I say, too of the countless multitude of those who have reformed intemperate habits..." You said "refused"

I liked this quote:

we who valued above all things the acquisition of wealth and possessions, now bring what we have into a common stock, and communicate to every one in need; we who hated and destroyed one another, and on account of their different manners would not live with men of a different tribe, now, since the coming of Christ, live familiarly with them.

I am certain that I pronounced "pictorial" with and without the "i." It's the same word to me, but I can make it consistent if you insist.

Mike, This is a very interesting contribution. I listened to it this morning. But before I accept it for the Nonfiction Collection, could you please help me out with your sourcing. I can see that it originates from a U.S. government site: https://www.uscourts.gov/. Generally speaking, material originating from the U.S. Government is in the public domain, but to be sure about this case summary I would like to be able reach the court case myself, by accessing it through the U.S. government site.

Could you please tell me the "route" through which you navigated on the web to reach this source. I can see there is a page on the uscourts site called " https://www.pacer.gov/ for accessing electronic files; but I also also see that I would have to sign up for an account to use it. I also see there is a charge for accessing "Pacer" and that there is a disclaimer under the
question "Is All Case Information Available to the Public. " that "some documents may be unavailable to the general public." So, while I think this would be a great addition to our collection, I need your help on this one. Thanks in advance, :)

Hi Sue. PACER is a scam. :P To be honest, I have been following this case since the district court decision and just used the name I knew to find the .gov link through Google when this appellate opinion dropped. You can get there through the main site as well!

1) https://www.ca3.uscourts.gov/
2) Click "Opinions and Oral Arguments" https://www.ca3.uscourts.gov/opinions-and-oral-arguments
3) Click "Recent Precedential Opinions" https://www.ca3.uscourts.gov/opinions-and-oral-arguments (The case will only be listed on this page until the end of the month, but there is an internal search that can be used for finding it later.)
4) Click "Silvertop Associates Inc v. Kangaroo Manfacturing Inc" https://www2.ca3.uscourts.gov/opinarch/182266p.pdf (lol, they misspelled it)
Mike
