Thank you.

At this point, the exact heritage of historical figures looks to be of secondary importance to how people approach the question

William Shakespeare’s Timon Athens performed by the Los Angeles Drama Club / Shakespeare in the City. These are mostly underprivileged kids from an underfunded and underserved who have been given an opportunity to break out of their hard situations.

I was moved seeing these young children performing Shakespeare with such animation, enthusiasm, and skill.

The cute, it hurts

The United States has more people in prison than any other country and incarcerates people at a higher rate than at any other time in history. Our crime rate, however, is not higher than in other countries or than it has been historically. Why, then, are so many Americans behind bars? The answer lies in the United States’ use of mass incarceration as a strategy to reduce crime, particularly to fight illicit drug use. Yet mass incarceration has not been effective at reducing crime and illicit drug use. It has, however, destroyed families and communities and has exacerbated racial inequality in that the primary victims of intensified law enforcement have been people of color.

untapped aesthetic: surrealist jock

a varsity jacket but it has three arms and it’s melting

your football shoulder pads have grass growing out of them and they constantly hum

you shove nerds not into lockers, but into other planes of existence. your football is always singing, singing, singing. the astroturf changes colors beneath you, and whispers the name of every person you’ve ever loved.

And now, the weather

Unsung Hero: Bessie Beatty

As a writer and activist Beatty supported many progressive causes, including that of Thomas J. Mooney, convicted of planting the bomb in the 1916 San Francisco preparedness day march (and eventually pardoned), and the rights of prostitutes to alternative employment when their brothels were closed by police actions. During World War I she became a foreign war correspondent for the Bulletin, covering events in Japan, Korea, China, and Russia. In China she wrote amid the revolutionary struggles taking place there, managing to interview leaders of the contending forces as civil war swirled around them.
