Mystery and Crime Pinkerton, Frank: Dyke Darrell, Railroad Detective (1886); v1; 11 May 2020

An entertaining example of the 1880s dime novel, written by the son of the founder of Pinkerton's detective agency. Melodramatic in the extreme, it tells of the search for a gang that robbed a train between Chicago and St Louis, killing one of the crew. Dyke Darrel, celebrated Pinkertons agent, is called in, and the sort of actions you see in a Saturday movie serial of the 1930s ensues before it is all wrapped up. Cops and crooks wear disguises by which even their closest friends can't recogn...

Best intentions, and all that...

I'd really intended for this cross-country road trip to involve more stopping and taking pictures.My trip out was initially intended to have two middlin'-easy eight hour legs, overnighting in Joplin, MO and Amarillo, TX, leaving me with a final day's drive of only about five hours to Los Alamos. If I blew out of Amarillo early enough on that last morning, the short five-hour drive (combined with the fact that crossing from Central to Mountain time knocked a virtual hour off my pace) should have ...

Retaking the Stage: What Artists Can Be In Our Society

Composer Lei Liang and soprano Susan Narucki were aware they were delving into a topic of immense importance in their new chamber opera, Inheritance, which deals with guns and gun violence. So they didn’t really need a reminder of the issue’s urgency when a gunman murdered 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue gathered for Shabbat morning services on October 27, the day of the opera’s third and final performance at the University of California San Diego. “That Saturday performance was very difficu...

The fiddle and the city

The violin holds special importance to me as part of my upbringing in Detroit, both as part of the musical world of my Jewish community and as an example of the citywide belief in music education. The Detroit that I grew up in had a pulsating inner musical life from the many populations that Detroit attracted to and housed in its vast industrial landscape. For the Jews, the violin literally had a special resonance. It was the lead instrument in the traditional klezmer dance bands for weddings. I...

Financial capability for all

Millions of U.S. families find themselves in precarious financial circumstances, living on the wrong side of the growing income and wealth divide. Despite the recent economic recovery, average wages buy about the same amount of goods and services as they did 40 years ago. The federal minimum wage, adjusting for inflation, buys less today than it did in 1968. Income increases have mostly gone to top income earners. Meanwhile, household wealth is even more concentrated. The top 20% of households o...
