America in Color 1939 to 1943

Just, exactly, what's supposed to be WEIRD about this collection of photos on The Denver Post's site I've no real idea. Maybe it's that they're all in color. Or, maybe it's just that they're all from 1939 to 1943. Or, maybe it's that they show us, in stark realization, just how much advancement has been made in the last 70 years. Or could it be that most of us, living today, weren't around to experience this America? You've got to decide on your own but to do that you've got to GO VISIT the site and spend a quarter of an hour in awe of our past.

What can we do to help, Cecil? AFIK, we don't have too much control over the link setup in the editor.

Cecil, in your browser you should be able to select the colors you want for the links. There should also be a setting where the browser will override the pages' codes.
For Firefox it is

Tools/Options/Content then the [Colors] button.
