On this day, 10 August 1889, Polish World War II resistance fighter and writer Zofia Kossak-Szczucka was born in Kośmin, Lublin Governorate. During the German occupation of Poland, Zofia worked on the underground press, co-editing a resistance newspaper, founded a Catholic resistance group and another group to help save Jewish people from extermination.

She was arrested after being denounced by a Polish aristocrat and sent to Auschwitz, however fortunately the resistance secured her release.

In 1944 she joined the Warsaw uprising against the Nazis, and survived the war, living until the age of 78.

Ray Bradbury: "Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off!" #Playboy interview, 1996

I foresaw political correctness 43 years ago. … whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. … I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is bullshit. You can't fool around with the dangerous notion of telling a university what to teach and what not to.
