I don't think I ever heard of this man before, and I am sorry to only know of him upon his death. I hope his 106 years ended peacefully and that he was able to enjoy life knowing he had given that gift to so many. May he rest in peace.
Add this story to the pile of those waiting for situations to be made right. I hope she gets some measure of justice however delayed.
The New York Times hosted a discussion about race with white folks. Here is the transcript... there is a video, but I don't watch those because they make my computer blow up. And, I like to read the news unless it's Jon Stewart.
It is like the news lately is begging for a movie -- girl on girl violence sells, but this story is a little more complicated than that -- it is, as someone in the article suggests, Lord of the Flies, but I would add, meets The Bling Ring meets I don't know what ... spoiled kids, kids sent away from home to school, too much money, too little supervision and too much social media ... they are lucky no one is dead.
The NYTimes is getting in on the love column ... and this one made me smile.
I am planning to go see this movie tomorrow ... I have heard some interesting commentary about it, looking forward to seeing it for myself.
Too long, but keeps your attention, til about the middle when it starts to feel toooo loooong... story of a person who doesn't really drive, and lives in NY City, who decides to drive in Montana and Wyoming ... go figure.
late addition: beautiful photo journal of a family --Strangers No More, just gorgeous! I braved non-reader NY Times blowing up my computer to see it. Worth it.
