Electronic Village forwarded a post from his blog entitled: Manic Monday: Graphic. It deals with lynching in America and the efforts of James Allen, who collected photographs and postcards taken as souvenirs at some of these events. Mr. Allen published them in a book called: Without Sanctuary. As EV explains some of the history of lynching, he also provides links to a flash movie with a narrative by James Allen and a gallery of photgraphs. The images are graphic.

Interestingly Francis Holland asks: Is Lynching Behavior Symptomatic of Extreme Color Arousal Disorder (ECA).
