To wit: Cyril and Ruth Harvey, “who played a key role in popularizing the game, lived on Pennsylvania Avenue (a pricey $320 green property on the board); their friends, the Joneses, lived on Park Place. … The Harveys employed a Black maid named Clara Watson. She lived on Baltic Avenue in a low-income, Black neighborhood, not far from Mediterranean Avenue. On the Monopoly board, those are priced cheapest, at $60.” – The Atlantic

Are there any special readings for St. Valentine?” I eagerly asked. “Listen, Sport,” he said, in his Australian accent, calling me the affectionate nickname he used for all of the students in his life. “...

The Marvellous Party.

"I Went to a Marvellous Party" is a 1938 song — I guess it's a rap song, no? — by Noël Coward.Noël Coward composed this song after he and Beatrice Lillie attended a beach party given by Elsa Maxwell in the south of France, an event which his memory placed in either 1937 or 1938.
