A Month’s-End Associated Press (AP) Photographic Celebration of: SUPREME

in Hmm Weekly
on July 1, 2022

HMM WEEKLY HAS a precedent, deeply rooted in our tradition and history, under which we seek to thoroughly exhaust The Brick House Cooperative’s monthly allotment of Associated Press (AP) photos. If we don’t download and publish the full number of images, the unused portion becomes irretrievable. There is no appeals process for clients of the Associated Press. The principle of stare decisis, then, compels us to present you, the readers, with this month’s thematic visual topic: SUPREME.

Dwight Eisenhower – During his visit to a U.S. Heavy Bomber Station on April 11, General Dwight Eisenhower, SUPREME allied commander, named one of the latest models of the Flying Fortress, General “Ike”, by smashing a bottle of Mississippi River water against the baffles of the 50-calibre guns jutting out of the nose of the aircraft. The name is painted in huge letters of black and yellow on the nose of the ship and there is a picture of the general alongside. General Eisenhower inspects a 2000-pounder after he had named a new fortress, General “Ike” at a U.S. Heavy Bomber Station somewhere in England April 11, 1944. With him are Col. Claude E.

Nightmare Campaign Scenarios -In this Nov. 8, 2000 file photo, then-Democratic presidential candidate, Vice President Al Gore speaks in Nashville, Tenn., on the current status of the presidential vote recount in Florida. The mere mention of the 2000 election unsettles people in Palm Beach County. The county’s poorly designed “butterfly ballot” confused thousands of voters, arguably costing Democrat Al Gore the state, and thereby the presidency. Gore won the national popular vote by more than a half-million ballots. But George W. Bush became president after the SUPREME Court decided, 5-4, to halt further Florida recounts, more than a month after Election Day. Bush carried the state by 537 votes, enough for an Electoral College edge, and the White House. (AP Photo/Stephan Savoia, File)
