("Every nation has the government that it deserves." - Joseph de Maistre (1753-1821))
Looks like USC fell short against the Ducks at the Coliseum. However, the Trojans still hold a 9-2-1 lead in the series, so Oregon has a lot of catching up to do.
Fight on! Cage the Cougars!

October 12, 1941
- "Following the extermination by Gestapo agents and Ukrainian militia of 10,000 to 12,000 Jews at burial pits outside of Stanislawów, Ukraine, German perpetrators throw a "Bloody Sunday" victory celebration.
- "At Sabac, Yugoslavia, hundreds of Gypsies are murdered.
- "Three thousand Jews are killed at Sheparovtse, Ukraine."
"From June to November 1941, Arthur Nebe commanded Einsatzgruppe B, operating around Minsk, Belorussia, and along the Moscow front.
In those five months, Nebe's unit executed over 45,000 Jews.
"After completing his assignment in Russia, Nebe returned to his duties as head of the Criminal Police.
During Heinrich Himmler's visit to Minsk, Nebe staged the shooting execution of 100 people for the Reichsführer's viewing.
Himmler, sickened at the sight, became particularly distressed over two women not killed outright.
He then instructed Nebe to find more "humane" methods of killing.
When given the task of ending the suffering of insane-asylum inmates, Nebe used dynamite on the mentally ill.
"Involved in the plot against Hitler, Nebe was himself apparently executed in 1945.
He may have survived, however, as witnesses reported seeing him in Italy in 1956 and Ireland in 1960."
