    The shooting happened just after 12:30 a.m. on the 900 block of NE 125th Street. According to police, someone drove up and the passenger got out of the car and shot Bell multiple times. North Miami Police said that multiple suspects were possibly seen leaving the scene in a dark colored vehicle with a spoiler on the rear, or a light colored car. “At this time, we don’t have a motive but we can tell you that nothing was taken. He had jewelry on him, money on him, his car keys, so we’re looking for why this happened,” said North...

  • Philip Larkin, the Impossible Man

    The Atlantic ^ | May 2011 | Christopher Hitchens
    In May 1941, Philip Larkin was the treasurer of the Oxford University English Club and in that capacity had to take the visiting speaker George Orwell out to dinner after he had addressed the membership on the subject of “Literature and Totalitarianism.” Larkin’s main recollection: “We took Dylan Thomas to the Randolph and George Orwell to the not-so-good hotel. I suppose it was my first essay in practical criticism.” Nudged and intrigued by this potential meeting of minds, I once attempted a comparison and contrast between Larkin and Orwell, as exemplars of a certain style of “Englishness.” Both men had...

    501c3 Cowards Oh, say can you see, in the rapidly decaying twilight, Today’s churches throughout America cowering in fright. So easily selling away what is their God given birthright! How can they surrender their proud American heritage? They once fueled the fires of freedom in patriots galore, Triumphing o’er tyranny establishing a nation to adore. Their leadership once shined as brightly as any sage of lore! How can they dishonor their God’s glorious heritage? His church built with martyrs’ blood their duty to preserve, What of their oaths of loyalty and all they pledged to observe? How easily they...

  • Dr Seuss, happy birthday! Let's say it once more

    Guardian ^ | Wednesday 2 March 2011 19.05 GMT | Lindesay Irvine
    One-hundred-and-fourth birthdays aren't usually much celebrated for authors who aren't alive anymore. But it seems an appropriately eccentric occasion to mark for the frankly fantabulous Theodor Seuss Geisel – rather better known as Dr Seuss – who came into the world on 2 March, 1904. Like generations of children I was weaned on his spry, jazzy tales, and now – when Uncle Lindesay steps up to put the kids to sleep with one of his famously thrilling bedtime stories – it's not just a nostalgic kick I'm getting out of the experience. They're still brilliant pieces of writing: as well...

    The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light, I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight. My wife was asleep, her head on my chest, my daughter beside me, angelic in rest. Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white, Transforming the yard to a winter delight. The sparkling lights in the tree, I believe, Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.

    A Lame Duck Christmas ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when scared like a mouse, A lame duck was stirring, Both in Senate and House. November elections, still hung in the air (though most of the Democrats just didn’t care.) Their omnibus nestled, all snug and unread, And visions of pork barrels danced in their heads. San Fran Nan in her kercheif, with gums all aflap, Had a DREAM their agenda they still could enact. Though the voters had risen and made such a clatter To Nancy and Harry that just did not matter. They wish for no asking, and hope...
