A Feather In Our Cap



NBC’s Today with Hoda & Jenna.

An item on US telly – featuring covering the financial aid being sent from Irish donors to help two tribes of the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma, USA during the rona. In 1847 the Choctaw people sent $170 to help during the famine. The best $170 they ever spent, in fairness.

      ‘best $170 they ever spent in fairness’ is a bit jarring too

      Probably only meant as banter but coming off disrespectful and clumsy. what would you call that?

    I love this story
    and don’t care how many times its retold

    not told often enough afaic

    and btw
    that piece in Middleton
    is very striking, not like Middleton’s own – John Fenton’s strike
    as memorialised in a tshirt
    but it is very strong and elegant
    worthy even

    and clearly – now that I think about it
    in the right place, where God calls his hometown
