Adolf Hitler's dad Wants His kid Back

I never claimed to be above exploitation, so here we go.

Since when is it the state's business to remove children from their father because he eccentric? Have to admit to having my own quarks, but dressing up as a Nazi isn't one of them.

Adolf Hitler's dad shows up in court in full Nazi regalia

New Jersey white supremacist embroiled in custody battle says he's fit to be father: 'Look within, not what's on outside'

A father of four from New Jersey who gave his children Nazi-inspired names, including Adolf Hitler, turned up to a child custody hearing adorned in full Nazi uniform.

"I'm going to tell the judge, I love my children. I wanna be a father, let me be it. Let me prove to the world that I am a good father," said Heath Campbell, a 40-year-old white supremacist embroiled in a legal battle for the right to see his 18-month-old son Hons.

State authorities took Adolf Hitler Campbell, 6, and his younger sisters Joycelynn Aryan Nation, 5, and Honszlynn Hinler, 4, into custody in January 2009. They have all been adopted.

Welfare services claimed the children suffered from neglect and abuse, while Campbell vows he has never hit his children, and that he's only persecuted because of the names he chose for them.

First Drive in Theater, 80 years Ago, June 6, 1933

This isn't news or anything of importance. Just something I thought interesting.

On this day in 1933, eager motorists park their automobiles on the grounds of Park-In Theaters, the first-ever drive-in movie theater, located on Crescent Boulevard in Camden, New Jersey.
Park-In Theaters--the term "drive-in" came to be widely used only later--was the brainchild of Richard Hollingshead, a movie fan and a sales manager at his father's company, Whiz Auto Products, in Camden. Reportedly inspired by his mother's struggle to sit comfortably in traditional movie theater seats, Hollingshead came up with the idea of an open-air theater where patrons watched movies in the comfort of their own automobiles. He then experimented in the driveway of his own house with different projection and sound techniques, mounting a 1928 Kodak projector on the hood of his car, pinning a screen to some trees, and placing a radio behind the screen for sound. He also tested ways to guard against rain and other inclement weather, and devised the ideal spacing arrangement for a number of cars so that all would have a view of the screen.
The young entrepreneur received a patent for the concept in May of 1933 and opened Park-In Theaters, Inc. less than a month later, with an initial investment of $30,000. Advertising it as entertainment for the whole family, Hollingshead charged 25 cents per car and 25 cents per person, with no group paying more than one dollar. The idea caught on, and after Hollingshead's patent was overturned in 1949, drive-in theaters began popping up all over the country. One of the largest was the All-Weather Drive-In of Copiague, New York, which featured parking space for 2,500 cars, a kid's playground and a full service restaurant, all on a 28-acre lot.
