Miss Birdie

Oh, my, will you look at them leaves a-flying. And how nice it is to be up here, setting on your porch, even if we have to holler at one another from a safe distance. This old covid thing has kept me right close to home and it's a pleasure to be here looking off in the faraway; a body needs to rest her eyes on the faraway now and then, don't you think? That's why I asked could we visit a spell up here after I made the rounds of my folks in the graveyard. I didn't hardly know what to...

ON THIS DAY IN 1929, the stock market crashed; the beginning of the Great Depression. How did we get out of it? We elected a Democrat. When FDR ran for president, he seemed an unlikely savior: a rich dilettante with a funny accent, a withered body, and cigarettes he smoked from a holder. But Roosevelt had a message and a cause: the "forgotten man" — the broken farmer in the West, the apple vendor hawking his wares for a nickel in in Manhattan, the Chicago and St. ...

The Legend of How Bluesman Robert Johnson Sold His Soul to the Devil at the Crossroads

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaKkzNqCPnc We remember the bluesman Robert Johnson as the Jimi Hendrix of the 1930s, a guitarist of staggering skill who died before age thirty. Both found mainstream success, but Johnson’s came posthumously: in fact, his music and Hendrix’s first music hit it big in the same decade, the 1960s. King of the Delta Blues Singers, an album of Johnson’s songs released by Columbia Records in 1961, had a great influence on the likes of Bob Dylan, Keith Richards,...

Remembrance of sanity past

Marcel Proust did not overestimate the power of the senses to recall the past. As soon as the first wave of fragrance from my ‘Garden Party’ orienpet lilies hits, I am taken back to other summers. In many ways, they were better summers. It has to be said, this is a weird one. In those days, as now, the scent of the lilies would waft out toward the sidewalk. Garden Walk visitors would comment, “Now here’s a garden that smells like a garden.” Neighbors would call out as we weeded our front yards. ...

Eight months in, California is containing COVID-19 as other states spike. Here’s why.

Eight months into the coronavirus pandemic, California has become a rare case: a state that has contained the transmission of COVID-19 and isn’t experiencing another surge — yet, at least. Nationwide, daily infections are up one-quarter in the last two weeks, and the country just reported its most in a single day since July. Lightly populated North Dakota is seeing 85 new cases a day per 100,000 residents over the last two weeks. California? Ten new cases per 100,000, up just 2 percent in two we...

The US has entered its 3rd — and possibly largest — wave of coronavirus cases. Experts say states should 'pull back.'

Medical workers in Florida test a person for the coronavirus on July 22. Joe Raedle/Getty Images) The US has entered its third wave of coronavirus infections. New cases are spiking in the Midwest. Public-health experts worry this wave could be the largest, and perhaps deadliest, yet. A surge in cases and hospitalizations was expected, they added, since lockdowns have lifted, people are spending more time indoors, and "pandemic fatigue" has set in.

Disney+ Expands Advisory Warning for Racist Content on Titles Like ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘Dumbo’

Disney has had a long history of retrograde depictions of people of color in their classic animated films — an issue that the company has been grappling with for decades. See: the saga of Disney’s famously racist 1946 film Song of the South, which has been both promoted and hidden by the company at various intervals throughout the years. But unlike Disney’s treatment of Song of the South, which Disney has made a concerted effort to make unavailable on home video and streaming, the House of Mous...
