Two Dutch girls use chalk to write slogans and messages for friends and relatives in other towns on a tank after the liberation of Breda by the Allied Polish 1st Armoured Division. Many civilians in occupied countries would write messages on the tanks of their liberators, knowing that these tanks would soon move on to the next town, hoping their friends or relatives would see the messages. On the tank you can see names, addresses and “Alles goed" ("All is good" in Dutch). Breda, North Brabant, the Netherlands. November 1944.

Jeffrey Grossman, a Chatham High School graduate, was apprehended by the U.S. Secret Service last Thursday when he successfully climb over the White House fence. He was wearing a Pokemon-themed shirt and hat, and carried a Pikachu doll from the Pokemon card game and cartoon.

Grossman went to an out-of-state hospital to admit himself for mental health treatment but was unable to due to his healthcare coverage. When he asked about it further, he was told that was how the healthcare system is set up and he should talk with the president about it. He then traveled to Washington, D.C.

“I was informed that, when he was apprehended, he told security that he had come to talk with the president about his health care program,” his mother, a local pharmacist, said.
